BUNNY SMASH design to touch the world
Exihibition Outline :
As society has become increasingly complex since entering the 21st century, design has also been undergoing dramatic changes. Today, the sort of design that is taking on increasing importance is one that has the capacity to change people's perception of society, as opposed to one that contributes to the constant stream of consumer products pursuing “newness.” This exhibition focuses on practices in design by a total of twenty one designers, artists and architects, both domestic and foreign, who address various elements and phenomena pertaining to today's highly advanced information society in the form of tangible design. Crossing over genres, their practices interpret the present landscape of the world we live in through unique measures. At times, through unexpected ideas, they give us the opportunity to see and feel the world in ways which we would not otherwise. By providing a comprehensive physical experience, as opposed to one that depends solely on the sense of vision, the exhibition aims to question anew existing bodies of knowledge and the ways in which information is disseminated in society, while also providing an entry point for viewers to think about ways in which they can engage with the world as active participants.

An analogy can be drawn between the eye-opening experience of seeing the world differently and Alice stepping into a parallel universe while chasing the White Rabbit in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The White Rabbit encourages us to delve into the new realm of Wonderland; he is the symbolic figure who “smashes up” logical perspectives and conventions. The exhibition title “BUNNY SMASH” connotes this sort of invitation to the world through a different gateway.
