Anti-Design Festival

The Anti-Design Festival kicked off in London this past weekend. What IS the Anti-Design Festival you ask? Their manifesto states:

As a response to 25 years of cultural deep freeze in the UK, the Anti Design Festival will attempt to unlock creative fires and ideas, exploring spaces hitherto deemed out-of-bounds by a purely commercial criteria.

Created initially as a direct response to the pretty commerciality of the London Design Festival, the festival will shift the focus from bums-on-seats to brain food, and from taste and style to experiment and risk. The festival will provide a rare space for unhindered exploration and creative opportunity, where ideas may fail as equally as succeed.

…and as expected, food was an inspiration in some of the works. I was especially attracted to this somewhat cute yet surreal mash up of a young ballerina girl meets ice cream cone meets milk explosion and sweets.

I’m not sure who the artist is for this one, but if you know, send me an email!

The festival ends on September 26th, go to the ADF site for more information about exhibitors and locations.
