The Performance of Making: Material Explorations Along the Product Development Path
During their Autumn 2020 industrial design studio course, fourteen 3rd-year students have been tasked with designing and producing “housewares” products that must strike a balance between the needs of potential users, the demands of small-run production, the constraints of a limited budget, and the considerations for addressing sustainability. In this collection of short videos, students’ performances of making illuminate hidden potential in materials and processes that will serve to inform and inspire their designs, tacitly and explicitly. This is your chance to preview their design-based making, which will ultimately result in the production and sale of at least 70 unique products in the Department of Design’s Third Annual Winter Market event - online this year for the very first time - and just in time for the Holidays!
