Newcastle Design Workshop and Exhibition

These are a few images from a Newcastle design workshop I went to a while ago. A few of th designs in the street were old but nice to visit like the park bench emerging folding over as it comes from the ground and how the concrete rug climbs the wall. These designs are attractive because they are different. We notce them because of this. The installations in the exhibition are also interesting: the hospital ward was strange to walk through thinking people do that for a living with empty body bags hanging etc…

what I learned from this is people will act differently if something is different or abnormal to the things/designs we are used to and take for granted. It is important that something is unique to catch the public attention and change a behaviour. And I can take this and use it with my development work for my honours project at the moment.
