DREAM-design project for Design Tasmania in September 2018, in collaboration with designer Michelle Boyde.
Commissioned by Karina Clarke, CEO Design Tasmania to present work for its annual Women in Design colloquium.
Borrowing methodologies from social dreaming practice to explore a deeper, more emergent kind of ‘design thinking’, Michelle and Feifei invited participants to contribute an (anonymous) night dream using this online portal, which identifies and visualizes common themes. Working alongside colloquium speaker Professor Susan Long, the links between dreams and themes were further explored and responded to in a 3D design outcome presented in a stunning gallery space, looking out onto Launceston’s photogenic City Park. The resulting exhibition explores the collective dreaming materially, literally and analytically.
