“The newspaper dismissed this [design] idea as ‘art’, and to us, that is an insult…”

A couple of great links sent over by Sarah Tripp. Firstly the video above which provides some very interesting (and entertaining) ideas to digest. Meanwhile, this article in Frieze magazine looks at relationships between conceptual art and the design of experiences. Though I have some reservations about the connections being made in this article, (and the arguments being drawn from them), both the video and article are interesting at a time when the less informed are throwing the word ‘conceptual’ around with a lack of thought in assessments of various different design courses and degree shows, as the thin end of a thick wedge for needlessly polarising ‘ideas’ from the execution.
