Detailed Description

 

The graduate project (translated: infographical patterns in everyday life) consists of various everyday objects, which all have one in common: they convey valuable facts via their decors and patterns and thereby enable an innovative access to different subjects in everyday life. The variety of subjects is manifold and depends on the object’s application: It ranges from poverty worldwide (items: plates), child labour in textile industry (item: dress) and vegetable production/retail (item: shoppingbag) to power supply in Europe (items: lampshades) and to water scarcity in Africa (item: shower curtain).

The idea of infographical patterns demonstrates that decorative and informative appeal is not mutually exclusive and points out, that the combination of aesthetics and information has much potential for sustainable konwledge transfer. The patterns are adaptable to many other subjects and are useful whenever important facts need to be integrated in our everyday lives to increase awareness of concealed issues.
