Design by Time

Organized by Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, and curated by Ginger Gregg Duggan and Judith Hoos Fox of c2-curatorsquared, Design by Time explores how the dynamic passage of time can be embodied within design objects. The exhibition places the work of 22 international designers and collaboratives into three categories: Time Performed, Time as Creator, and Time Visualized. The work portrays time's effect on a diverse array of materials and processes, resulting in textiles, fashion, furniture, vessels, and more.

Design by Time goes beyond presenting the conventional, functional intention of design and brings together designers whose work embodies durational movement. Some designers embrace natural and mechanical processes--the growth of plant materials, the pull of gravity, the transformational potential of fire. Some designers translate temporal activities into visual forms, such as music and drawing. Guest curators Ginger Gregg Duggan and Judith Hoos Fox note, "To organize our thinking and the presentation of the works, we have considered three, not always distinct, approaches to these partnerships between designers, space, time, and materials."

Time as Creator: objects that have been created by their designers partnering with natural rhythms and forces, highlighting works such as Jacob Olmedo's And the World Will Be As One (2018), a garment impregnated by wheatgrass seeds that sprout into green blades of grass that eventually dry. Olmedo's fashion designs bring humans and nature together in wearable garments that conceptually act as environmental armor.

Time Visualized: objects that in their form and configuration offer a visual representation of the passage of time, featuring artwork such as Sebastian Brajkovic's chair, Lathe V Chair (2008), that appears stretched by time, moving from a historical piece of furniture into a contemporary form.

The works presented in Design by Time offer innovative readings of the profound and abundant subject of time. The designers' formal processes result in objects that express the dynamic passage of time and serve as concrete embodiments of life itself.
