Swarovski Exhibit Uses Crystals To Explore The Future Of Memories
Fifteen designers collaborate on a new exhibition at The Design Museum of London that questions our relationship with the digital world.
The Design Museum has partnered with Swarovski for an experiment examining the perception of memories in the digital age. Digital Crystal: Swarovski At Design Museum includes fifteen incredible installations from contemporary designers recovering the lost connection between objects and time. Deyan Sudjic, Director of the Design Museum, explains main idea behind the exhibition:
Digital Crystal: Swarovski at the Design Museum explores the meaning of memory in the digital age, with the demise of the analogue era our relationship and connection with personal memory, photographs, diaries, letters, time and ephemera is changing. The exhibition takes this as its starting point, to question the future and our relationship with the changing world, where it seems all too easy to lose connection with the tangible and the real, as we move ever faster to a digital age where memory and the personal possessions we once held so highly are now online or gone in an instant.
