I BEGIN THE PROCESS OF CREATION WIT H MANU AL WORK, SO THAT I CAN CARRY OUT AN INTE LLECTU AL ANALYSIS AND REF LECT ARTISTI CALLY LATER
Rooted Design for Routed Living is a research and workshop project initiated by two cultural institutions which run residential artistic programmes – the Nordic Artists’ Centre in Norway (NKD) and the Creative Residence Programme at the Centre for Contemporary Art in Warsaw (a-i-r laboratory). A group of designers from Poland and Norway were invited to participate in the project, and their leaders were Oscar Narud and Tomek Rygalik. The main goal was to find new functional solutions for functional spaces in Dale and Warsaw
The participants spent a larger part of their time on workshop experiments. They built numerous prototypes and models which they later presented to the artists staying at the residencies. Thus they had the chance to create objects that reflected the real needs of future users.
