The exhibition Unfolding brings together works from students and graduates from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Design and the College of Arts and Design of Ewha Womans University in Seoul, creating a visual dialogue between young designers in East Asia.
The contemporary economy in the era of convergence is continually searching for ways to break down barriers and develop new methods to build a better tomorrow. In parallel, design is continuing to be multifaceted and increasingly multidisciplinary—through creativity, community, technology—unfolding potentials and possibilities across and between design fields.
Unfolding—referencing something in process, becoming—aims to present design works produced by undergraduate students and recent graduates from the two cities. Through these works, it considers approaches and perspectives of young designers as their practices and futures are unfolding. It is hoped that the visual dialogue this engenders will lead to an understanding of convergent topics of concern and ideas about forthcoming design trends.
