The Snake

Posted on: July 17th, 2013 by admin_dando No Comments

The Snake was inspired by our travels in Asia (Singapore, Vietnam and China) early in 2013 during Chinese New Year festivities. Slithering snakes, mandarin oranges and good luck pineapples galore!

We had the immense pleasure of working together with Harmen Liemburg to produce this print at Kees Maas Zeefdruk in Amsterdam.

Fountain Fountain

Fountain Fountain, a series of limited edition silkscreen prints, were exhibited at Kapitaal in Utrecht (Netherlands) at the completion of our residency in June 2013.

Fountain Fountain is a play on words, an investigation into form (the fountain as a monument) and colour (the split-fountain technique).

Fountain Fountain is a play on words, an investigation into form (the fountain as a monument) and colour (the split-fountain technique).

In a series of silkscreen prints, Design & Other deconstruct the wondrous elements of the fountain and reinterpret them as solid and liquid forms. Each print represents a new tier, gradients collide and ripple across the page, cascading upwards to the final spray.

Fountain Fountain was completed during D&O’s residency at Kapitaal, Utrecht (Netherlands). As part of their travels throughout Europe they are focused on undertaking projects to further understand the medium of silkscreen printing.

Split-fountain and colour development work conducted for our Fountain Fountain project during our residency at Kapitaal, Utrecht (Netherlands).

Rocce e Fiori

Posted on: July 17th, 2013 by admin_dando No Comments

During our stay in Hamburg, Germany in April 2013 we spent time at Frappanter Druck developing new silkscreen prints, finishing with a two-print series ‘Rocce e Fiori’ (Rocks and Flowers).

The prints are 11 and 15 colours respectively – some serious chopstick colour mixing was required!

In Giro

Posted on: July 17th, 2013 by admin_dando No Comments

Design & Other’s debut Australian exhibition, In Giro, a collection of limited edition silkscreen prints showed at Perimeter Books in Thornbury (Australia) in March 2012.

Created during our residency at Amsterdams Grafisch Atelier (AGA) in the Dutch capital during late 2011, the bold, vibrantly coloured works trace a 17-month period of travel through Asia and Europe.

Whether capturing the spectacle of the aurora borealis in Reykjavik or uncanniness of wandering carpet-lined streets in Istanbul, each of these works draw on two distinctly personal recollections of place and experience, engaging in notions of the keepsake or souvenir and exploring how memory can be articulated via creative process.
