  • Against the grain: Wood in Contemporary art, craft ad design.

    Posted on April 3rd, 2013 Ge No comments

    Against the grain is the exhibit put together by Museum of art and design. It mostly presents contemporary methods of word working and the new relationships between function and form that are discovered by 57 different artists and designers. There are total of 90 pieces.

    The following image is a “bird nest” created by Nina Bruun. She used curled strips to “mimick the organized chaos of a bird’s home in her Nest chair”. The curves are fluid and flow into each other. Also this is an example of linear, planar and solid (maybe?)
