Installations and live performances announced for Design Days Dubai
(Relaxnews) – Art installations and live performances will add an extra dimension to Design Days Dubai when the fair kicks off in the UAE this March.
A tech-art robotic arm installation drawing designs on the entrance wall will greet visitors entering the exhibition by sketching pictures of them. Designed by Guillaume Crédoz and Nareg Karaoghlanian, “TheObsessiveDrafter” is made entirely of 3D-printed parts.
Once inside, installations will include Benjamin Muzzin‘s “Full Turn,” a series of rapidly rotating iPad screens creating a mesmerizing pattern, and Tom Price‘s “PP Trysting Tree,” comprising polypropylene piping shaped into branches with blossoms.
“Light sculptures Castor and Pollux” by Giles Miller Studio utilizes texture and light to play with shadow and reflection, while designer Michael Anastassiades has teamed up with marble specialist Henraux to create “Marble Chips” — a series of elegant, hand-made marble pieces.
There will also be three live performances taking place on-site, including “Flowstone,” by duo Chen Chen & Kai Williams, which will focus on the creation of vessels by a specific dripping cement technique. Chilean design group gt2P (great things to People) will be showing off a project that explores the idea of how to create standard machines that generate non-standard results, and Rolf Bruggink will be transforming saucers into a seat, using concrete composed of colored sands from the desert and local ceramics.
