“Japanese Museum of Touch” Interactive Experience (5-5:30 pm)
Designer talk with Larissa Zemke
Larissa’s field research conducted in Japan over the span of one year (2019-20) on Japanese caring ways of designing & consuming textiles and clothing will be presented along with a walk-through of her exhibit to explain her research-creation process.
Japanese Natural Dyeing Workshop
Participants will join a natural dyeing workshop to learn about using shibori techniques and food waste. They will also have the option of doing an interactive audio-visual and haptic experience, “The Japanese Museum of Touch,” that will introduce them to Japanese aesthetics and philosophies.
The mission is to give a second/new life to used clothes and value the relationship between wearer and garment through natural dyeing and shibori techniques.
Consider it a large showroom of different ideas in design domains that will present, teach and inspire new ideas for you. The MDES22-research-creation show is Concordia University’s graduation show in design. In the exhibition, the students will display their designs and creations pertaining to their thesis. There will also be a series of different roundtables and workshops concerning research-creation topics. This exhibition will surely benefit the visitors who are interested in multidisciplinary design.
