Discovery. Design. And conversation.
This issue includes A. Spaice's piece 'Static on the Line.'
It's a conversation between two people who know one another well, but are, somehow, not on the same wavelengths.
Or even in the same galaxies...
'Conversation and connexion and learning as we go,' says A.Spaice, the research and development director of Design Kompany and a budding science fiction writer, too.
A. Spaice's six-part series,'Uncertainty', is featured in half of this season's set of zines, in S P A C E | Winter 2019-20, 'Project Epicurus'.
Dipika Kohli is the creative director of Design Kompany. She makes remarkable juxtapositions happen in which people might, surprisingly or not-surprisingly, discover a moment of insight by simply being, and being with others, whose paths they may not have crossed.
Here's a bit more about that idea... 'Art of Now...''Time already happened.’ I document through collage a very specific set of conversations: isolated and recollected moments. Think of a mirror reflecting another mirror.Where does here stop, start? What about now? The collages I make—whether a temporal meet up of strangers in real life, or a physical book pieced together with papers I collect wherever I go—are each a set of collected moments, reprocessed, and given a chance to be experienced newly by someone who finds them, and turns pages, turns them back, regroups, and investigates… as a new moment. Turning the pages, and making time to slow down, in order to absorb fully… so as to ultimately invite attentiveness. In that space, there can then be, I feel, a conversation, between sender, and receiver, through this medium of small book collage.To pause at ‘now.’ At ‘here.’ Could time mirror itself, too? ---DK
