Skins&Shells

Authors: EKA + HK PolyU

Tutors: Liisi Eesmaa, Piret Puppart, 

Basia Szkutnicka

Photographer: Nick D (Spitgan Magazine)

Skins&Shells is an international collaborative project between the Master´s of Fashion degree students of the Estonian Academy of Arts and Hong Kong Polytechnic University. 1600 Chinese wooden fans, iconic to Asia, were used as a medium to reflect the meaning of "protective membranes" surrounding the existence of life. The outcome resulted in 11 individual statement pieces, each with a narrative, transforming the human silhouette...delicate, dramatic, more than skin-deep.

Pallas University of Applied Sciences, Department of Leather Design, "WoW"

“A bag that doesn’t look like a bag” – this is the task our students get and it tells them to make a story with the help of a product where the form of the classic bag has vanished. Visitor of the exhibition can experience the so-called WOW effect looking at the works where something familiar is telling an unusual story, different from what to expect.

Pallas University of Applied Sciences, “I live here”

City as an environment is the seedbed for ever-changing and developing culture. Creation springs up from the environment and also creates it. The work of Pallas students is the outcome of questions about the relationship between environment and creator, place and people. The authors are both giving and getting, using and creating, valuing the past and visualizing the future. The city is alive until creativity lives there. "I Live Here" is the first display of design of the Pallas University of Applied Sciences.

Masterclass of FH Joanneum in Graz

The masterclass dealt with the question how do we experience space and architecture with our sense of hearing. There have been binaural recording techniques, playback and sound inventions in public space. And the outcome of this masterclass was:

1. DogDay, a audio/video installation transforming the sensual experience from a dogs perspective (audio, vision, electromagnetic fields etc) to the human range.

2. Sounds good sounds Graz - an interactive sound installation, using a taktile floor map to dance the sounds of Graz, especially the University.

3. Sound map - an interactive map reusing the metaphor of childrens tiptoe pen to explore the sounds and sight of special location in Graz.

All sounds have public access and can be heard on Udo Nolls apogee website.

University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Architecture: Liveability in urban transformations

Reducing traffic with motor vehicles, care for the environment and economical use of resources – transferring these goals into urban city spaces should reflect an enhanced quality of life in the sense of social and cultural awareness of urban communities, continuing the awareness of the usefulness of dialogue with history, thus promoting regional identity. Projects: development of residential area in connection with natural surrounding; from isolated housing structure to cooperative housing, challenges of sustainable mobility street; and architecture as a way of transforming the life.

Revitalisation of Former Salt Warehouses in Portoroz

The former salt warehouses are located along a coastal path which connects some of the most beautiful destinations on the Slovene coast. The purpose of this project is to highlight the unexploited opportunities and to find a solution that would take full advantage of the qualities of this space and the two protected buildings through a well defined relation of the area to the wider context. The project establishes a thorough concept for the waterfront, develops a vision for the area of the former warehouses and proposes an intervention into the existing structures, with which the space within the two buildings becomes part of the seafront. With the proposed concept of use, the former warehouses become a new centre of public life, where activities and events for both tourists and locals take place all year round and throughout the day.

Workshop/Talk: Living the Modernist City - WWA*
17.09, 12.00 - 17.00

@ Noblessneri valukoda, Peetri 10, 10411 Tallinn, Estonia

The workshop will be held as part of the exhibition "Living
the Modernist City - WWA", curated by Kolektiv, a gallery and group of curators devoted to Modernism, established at Le Corbusier's Housing Unit in Marseille. This event will launch a series of events around the same theme, bringing together designers, graphic designers, architects, photographs, visual artists and scholars from different Central and Eastern European countries, to take place in 2019-2022.
On the 17th afternoon, we will first introduce the work of our Kolektiv, largely devoted to Central and Eastern European design scenes in relation to 20th century architecture, and how the project Living the Modernist City emerged. Following this introduction, our guest speaker will be Edgar Bąk, a major graphic designer in Poland, who left his print on a number of venues of Warsaw contemporary cultural scene, and witnessed the massive changes experienced by the polish metropolis since the late 1990s. He will share his own vision of the polish modernist city and of its considerable visual impact on contemporary design and creation. In relation to the festival's core theme, we will explore the following questions with the audience:

How signs can shape a city and ultimately be one of the materials a city is made of?
What is the experience of Warsaw and other modernist Eastern European cities to that regard?
How specific landmarks such as wall paintings, neons or key public buildings do contribute to create a sense of belonging that is specific to cities or districts built after 1950?

These themes could interestingly resonate also in the Baltics, where modernist landscape from the 1960-80s, although much present, is not fully perceived as autochthonous urban fabrics, but as the footprint of the former USSR rule. Attendance and participation is opened to anyone interested in (or inspired by) modernist aesthetics.

CONFERENCE "Future Materials"
19.09. 10:00–16:00

@ Noblessneri Valukoda


International Conference "Future Materials"

 presents talks about how science, design, art and production are intermingled in today’s life. To maintain sustainable environment on the planet, society needs to rethink and revaluate the qualities of materials and their impact on the life around us. So research and development of new materials as well as recycling and processing of existing ones hold great importance. Conference presents innovative design experts with long-term practical experience from Holland, Great Britain and Estonia. Simone de Waart, Zoe Powell, Riina Õun and Kärt Ojavee introduce methods of developing new bio-based materials like mushrooms and alga, as well as designing new products, whereas Reet Aus introduces in addition to the method of upcycling the products made of yarn from old clothes. One day prior to the conference there will be held 2 workshops on materials, hosted by the speakers.

Skins&Shells is an international collaborative project between the Master´s of Fashion degree students of the Estonian Academy of Arts and Hong Kong Polytechnic University. 1600 Chinese wooden fans, iconic to Asia, were used as a medium to reflect the meaning of "protective membranes" surrounding the existence of life. The outcome resulted in 11 individual statement pieces, each with a narrative, transforming the human silhouette...delicate, dramatic, more than skin-deep.

The work of Pallas students is the outcome of questions about the relationship between environment and creator, place and people. The authors are both giving and getting, using and creating, valuing the past and visualizing the future. The city is alive until creativity lives there. "I Live Here" is the first display of design of the Pallas University of Applied Sciences.

Masterclass of FH Joanneum in Graz

The masterclass dealt with the question how do we experience space and architecture with our sense of hearing. There have been binaural recording techniques, playback and sound inventions in public space. And the outcome of this masterclass was:

1. DogDay, a audio/video installation transforming the sensual experience from a dogs perspective (audio, vision, electromagnetic fields etc) to the human range.

2. Sounds good sounds Graz - an interactive sound installation, using a taktile floor map to dance the sounds of Graz, especially the University.

3. Sound map - an interactive map reusing the metaphor of childrens tiptoe pen to explore the sounds and sight of special location in Graz.

All sounds have public access and can be heard on Udo Nolls apogee website.

Revitalisation of Former Salt Warehouses in Portoroz

The former salt warehouses are located along a coastal path which connects some of the most beautiful destinations on the Slovene coast. The purpose of this project is to highlight the unexploited opportunities and to find a solution that would take full advantage of the qualities of this space and the two protected buildings through a well defined relation of the area to the wider context. The project establishes a thorough concept for the waterfront, develops a vision for the area of the former warehouses and proposes an intervention into the existing structures, with which the space within the two buildings becomes part of the seafront. With the proposed concept of use, the former warehouses become a new centre of public life, where activities and events for both tourists and locals take place all year round and throughout the day.

Skins&Shells

Authors: EKA + HK PolyU

Tutors: Liisi Eesmaa, Piret Puppart, 

Basia Szkutnicka

Photographer: Nick D (Spitgan Magazine)

Skins&Shells is an international collaborative project between the Master´s of Fashion degree students of the Estonian Academy of Arts and Hong Kong Polytechnic University. 1600 Chinese wooden fans, iconic to Asia, were used as a medium to reflect the meaning of "protective membranes" surrounding the existence of life. The outcome resulted in 11 individual statement pieces, each with a narrative, transforming the human silhouette...delicate, dramatic, more than skin-deep.
