Knuckles & Notch conducted a series of 10-day workshops with students and alumni from DVMD, which culminated in a collective exhibition at the school. In this project, participants engaged in the Risography processes based on the concept of “Grow” to produce zine publications and limited edition posters.
futureTENSE by Diploma in Interior Design
futureTENSE took visitors on a journey to redefine the fundamental form of a cube. Through optical illusion and spatial configuration, space or rather, perceived space, was presented in an interactive manner through a mixture of installation and digital media.
Pleating Concrete by Melvin Ong of Desinere
“Pleating Concrete” was a workshop that sought to explore the intricacies of paper pleating and to transit this process of folding patterns from a planar origin into one that is volumetric through the method of casting concrete. The result of this is a series of objects, both interior and architectural in nature of application that individual students have designed.
The Wind Garden by Diploma in Experience and Product Design
A garden filled with pinwheels invited visitors to look a little closer. Playful, welcoming and somewhat mersmerising, the project’s main goal was to create ‘moments of engagement’ between users, objects and space.
