About Nothing, mainly

Friday 1 October | 13:30 – 14:15
Location: A-1 (Archa Hall 1)
Presentation | Theme: Essence and Practice | Duration: 45 minutes

How to make nothing is the hardest thing for a designer. Meanings of negative space, gaps, word separators, white, silence or zeros will be discussed, presenting visual material from different disciplines to make a point that withdrawing attention from the objects and becoming aware of the “nothing” liberates us to focus on the essence rather than forms.
