Part I: Light and Sound
The DX has asked some of the nation’s best architects and designers to tell us about the Canadian structures, graphics, and objects that interest them most, from the DX Permanent Collection of Postwar Industrial Design and beyond. Two exhibits over a 6 month period will highlight processes, materials, sensation and the elements of design, linking diverse disciplines for an unprecedented DX:Uncrated.
Part I: Light and Sound features post war and contemporary work in Canada created to stimulate the senses. Projections, objects of lighting, electronics, graphic and textile design illuminate the significance of the aural and visual in dictating the elements of design. Exploring exposure; colour; echo; the interplay of dark and light, silence and noise, this DX:Uncrated seeks to intensify the appreciation of light and sound as not only the mover and the product, but as a means of expression in design.
Featuring work by Guy Maddin, Castor Design, Jeremy Laing and Niall McClelland, Clairtone Corporation, Electrohome and more.
