Дизайн и эмоции

In the British capital in the cultural center Somerset house has opened a London design Biennale. This year the exhibition is dedicated to emotional States, how design affects our lives, sensations and feelings. The Biennale is attended by representatives of about forty countries. Says Ben Evans, Executive Director of the Biennale:

“Design doesn’t solve everything, but it can change our lives. And with that, I believe we face throughout each day. The design is everywhere. From the spoon we use in the morning, to the city where we live. And these nuances make a variety in our lives.”

Presented in London the work of individual artists and groups from six continents demonstrate how design decisions can surprise, excite the imagination, to cause controversy, delight and even educate. A number of exhibits reflect the significant events in the life of a particular country. Light technology installation by Flynn Talbot was an act to support changes in Australian law that have occurred in the field of legalization of gay marriage.

The London design Biennale will last almost three weeks and will end on September 23.
