Jaemin Paik: RCA Design Interactions
When we all live to 150
How would family life change if we all lived to 150 and beyond? With up to six generations living together, the traditional model of the family would change dramatically, perhaps even becoming unsustainable with the burden of its large membership. This project explores the future of families by tracing the story of 75 year-old Moyra and her sprawling contract-based family.
Imme van der Haak: RCA Design Products
Beyond the Body
Imme's work focuses on altering the human form by using just one simple intervention. Photos of the human body are printed onto translucent silk to create the possibility of physically layering different ages, generations and identities. In a dance performance, the moving body manipulates the fabric - the body and the silk become one - distorting our perception or revealing a new physical form. The movement brings this to life. Beyond the body brings into being an ambiguous image that intrigues, astonishes or sometimes even disturbs.
