Welcome to the launch of the online exhibition “Objects of the Forest”.
It presents a selection of sustainable objects found in the Amazon Forest that tell compelling stories about the coexistence of humans and nature from a design perspective. At a time when we face the harsh consequences of irresponsible and unconstrained industrial production, this project calls attention to the possibilities that nature at its most intense expression offers to contemporary society in general, and to design in particular.
The objects of the forest depend on natural conditions for their production and are at many times perishable; they are rooted in a non-consumerist culture and derived from techniques that survive from artisanal practices often endangered. These objects can thus serve as inspiration for rediscovering nature in multiple ways, for tightening our bonds with it and helping us reinvent the world in which we live.
Arts Promotion Centre Finland (Taike) has supported this virtual exhibition.
