Conor Klein- Introductory Presentation This Friday, 2pm.
Conor Klein is a designer and maker based in New York City. He received a BFA in Furniture Design from the Rhode Island School of Design and now collaborates with designers and artists to create furniture, objects and installations.
As Artist in Residence at SVA's Visible Futures Lab, Conor will explore the role of text in three-dimensional design.
"Within a product, text commonly identifies the object or provides instruction, clarifying what it is and how to use it. Words also create context independent from its function, associating an object with a location or an abstract idea. Written words are on products to communicate something more, to say what cannot be said otherwise. We have the tools to write anything, anywhere. What else can be said with design and text?"
