Deep Surface exhibition at CAM, Raleigh
I’m exhibiting the Maharam Digital Projects version of Process 6 (2010) in the Deep Surface exhibition in Raleigh, North Carolina. The exhibition runs from 24 September 2011 to 2 January 2012.
Deep Surface: Contemporary Ornament and Pattern is the first major exhibition to examine the re-emergence of ornament and pattern over the last 15 years. Deep Surface celebrates its reinvigoration as a communicative, functional, and desirable form of cultural expression, across all of the disciplines of design.
The exhibition comprises of six thematic sections and features 72 remarkably inventive works from 42 international designers and artists, including such seminal works as Marcel Wanders’s Knotted Chair, wallpaper by Paul Noble and Vik Muniz for Maharam Digital Projects, and fashions created from reconstructed second-hand clothes by Junky Styling. Deep Surface: Contemporary Ornament and Pattern is organized by CAM Raleigh.The breadth of the work—drawn from the fields of graphic design, industrial design, fashion, furnishings, architecture, and digital media—speaks to the pervasiveness and relevance of pattern and ornament today. Its hybrid languages are the aesthetic equivalent of the fast-paced and complex exchanges of our contemporary world.
