Stell dir Linien und Kurven in der dritten Dimension vor und lass eine gigantische Raumzeichnung in der Säulenhalle des MAK entstehen. Was macht eure Zeichnung mit dem Raum? Was wird verbunden und wo entstehen Absperrungen? Ist das denn schon Skulptur oder gar Architektur? Wir lassen uns von Marko Lulićs Arbeit aus der MAK-Ausstellung Raum als Medium der Kunst inspirieren und eure Zeichnung das Museum ergreifen.

OPENING TOKENS FOR CLIMATE CARE & MAYFLY
TOKENS FOR CLIMATE CARE
AN INSTALLATION BY PROCESS – STUDIO FOR ART AND DESIGN
The official Austrian contribution for the London Design Biennale 2021 was commissioned by the MAK and designed by Process – Studio for Art and Design. Now, the installation is on view in Vienna for the first time: Titled “Tokens for Climate Care,” the project focuses on the current and essential human task of climate care, nudged by the transformative power of design.
 
The project uses AI-based technology to create new and original graphic symbols based on a comprehensive database of logos, symbols and glyphs. Preliminary “labelling” of the data by the team with key terms that cover a broad definition of climate care, including its social, political, environmental and economic aspects, enables the AI model to design new symbols based on their meaning.
 
The new “Tokens for Climate Care” are presented in a spatial laser installation making the generated output data visible in real time. Visitors can take part in determining the meaning of the created symbols via their smartphones.

FUNCTIONAL COLLAGES
With their project “Mayfly,” the young designers Anton Defant and Benjamin Nagy examine the functional potentials of discarded materials. The life cycles of the improvised “functional collages” of the Mayfly sculptures begin where objects and components have lost their original function and have returned to being material: in the waste container. Thus, drain covers transform into a shelf, a former server rack into a chair, or a former sideboard and neon lights become a flood light.
 
There is no planning ahead when it comes to “Mayfly,” the objects are purely defined by the elements and materials currently available. The salvaged components are re-designed using as few tools as possible and without radically changing the material. As only the means available on site are used, the designers let themselves be led by the principle of improvisation.
 
This approach allows them to process the discovered material quickly, autonomously, and independently and gives the objects a playful immediacy. The exhibition display draws on the metaphor of a sandbox as a place to play and experiment: Here too, material takes on form and is destroyed again, while always remaining in the cycle.
