an in depth look at the design & function of what we use, why we use it & the minds that create them.
such a great documentary that caused me to think more seriously about what CTC is producing in Kenya through the LIFE Line products, their functionality and purpose. thinking more and more about the exchange that takes place between the creator, the maker and the user. what does it mean to become a part of the fashion industry in Africa and how will the customer/audience perceive what we are creating and the lives being impacted?
a few highlight quotes from the film:
“design dissolving into behavior” – Naoto Fukasawa
“I see designers as also designing scenarios based on objects that will help people understand the consequences of their choices.”
-Paola Antonelli, Design curator at the Museum of Modern Art, New York
“Consider wearing something in rather than wearing it out.”
– Bill Moggridge, co-founder IDEO
“A big definition of who you are as a designer is the way you look at the world.”
-Jonathan Ive, Senior VP Industrial Design at Apple
“Every object tells a story if you know how to read it.”
–Henry Ford quoted by Andrew Blauvelt, Design Curator Walker Art Center
the journey continues….
