When the Australian publisher of INDESIGN, Habitus and DQ called upon us to collaborate with them for SATURDAY INDESIGN, Singapore, they had only one single request; do whatever you want with 120 copies of our magazines.
Immediately we wondered, how do we show the relevance of design/architecture with respect to the content of the magazines? How do we highlight it’s necessity in our daily metropoli-tic lives? And what could we work on for an installation that was engaging and simple enough to explain design/architecture in it’s rawest form?
Our idea was simple. Build an infrastructure of miniature highways/buildings using all the magazines we were given, let the lifeblood of this micro city be marbles instead of vehicles/people, attach a vertical pulley system and let gravity do all the work.
We had much bigger plans but having received the magazines only the day before the event, we did whatever we could on the fly to ensure everything worked as we imagined.
SATURDAY INDESIGN, Singapore was held on Saturday 21st May 2011 at 72-13, Mohd Sultan Rd.
