Hello World: Code and Design

Curated by Aaron Seymour

Hello World: Code and Design examines the role of code in contemporary design, considering the ways in which designers are integrating computation into their practice. The exhibition gathers objects and technologies from across the design spectrum— from fashion and textiles, to moving image, graphics and the handmade—in order to reveal the new social and economic forces that generate them.

Processes such as 3D printing evidence the migration of the digital from the screen to the physical world, while networked technologies and the ‘internet of things’ disrupt common models of manufacture and ownership. Hello World explores code as both material and process in the experience and formation of our world.
