Fear & Love : Reactions to a Complex World
'From the shocking secrets of dating apps to 3D death masks and the meet’n’greet robot, this is a fun ramble through the zeitgeist' - Guardian
This companion book to The Design Museum's opening exhibition in its new home in Kensington, London explores the anxiety and optimism inherent in contemporary design. The book features installations by designers whose work explores the anxieties around issues like technological change, automation, privacy and the environment including OMA, Hussein Chalayan and Rural Urban Framework.
One of the most notable works is by the Spanish architect Andrés Jaque whose film, Intimate Strangers, charts the the phenomenal growth of grindr and reveals how the app is used by police in authoritarian regimes to track down and arrest gay people.
A thought-provoking read for those interested in design.
