We Make Carpets

PRESENTED ON FEB 24, 2015
IN BREDA @ VOL 13

Speaker Marcia Nolte discusses WE MAKE CARPETS, a buisness that does not make carpets. At least, not the kind of carpet you can walk on. Still, one of the visitors of the Dutch Design Week 2010 stepped all over Fork Carpet.

The carpets are not meant to be touched either. But it sometimes happens anyway. ‘Muisjes’ Carpet suddenly had an imprint of a finger. A visitor nibbled on Candybar Carpet. 

But to glue everything down or put an art barrier around it? No. That doesn’t fit with the work. From a distance it may look like a carpet but you have to come close to see it is actually made of clothes pegs. Or some other everyday product. 

APPLAUD THIS!

"Androids dream of real sheep" (or more boringly)  "The implications of the things we make"

BY JACK SHEPPARD
@ VOL 23 ON AUG 02, 2018

Empathy is a fundamental part of our human experience but the technology we build and design is at odds with that. So what is empathy, where does it come from and what can we learn from it?

Let’s talk about what it means to be an empathetic being, the effect technology is having on our ability empathise with each other and what we can do to understand each other better, communicate and design more ethical ‘things’ that help people be people.
