International Art & Design Festival 2014

BY KRISTJANA S WILLIAMS
@ VOL 1 ON JUL 25, 2014

Icelandic born artist Kristjana S Williams studied graphic design and illustration at Central St Martins and quickly gained critical acclaim as Creative Director of Beyond the Valley for 8 years.

In 2012, Kristjana S Williams Studio began creating fne art pieces, art prints and furniture.

The studio’s latest project presented a one of a kind collaborative audio-scape print journey at the spectacular Shanghai Exhibition Centre. Flying spirits were draped in beautiful traditional Chinese silk robes printed with Kristjana’s signature intricate art works, the masks are incredibly delicate hand paper-cut sculptures which crown each creature. The intrigued masked spirits followed the audience intertwining around the bamboo forest with mystical allure. Amongst the atmospheric surroundings, the creatures enticed visitors into listening to their unique, individual sounds through suspended Momentum headphones by German audio company, Sennheiser.

Previously in 2011 Kristjana S Williams and Beyond the Valley presented an interactive print journey at the V&A during London Design Festival, a show inspired by an interest in the way new technologies can be used in interiors and fashion design.
The illustrations juxtapose strong graphic lines with intricate victorian engravings creating incredibly striking and unique art work. Comprising of very intricate collages of material that have been collected from victorian engravings, photographs taken, found objects and real leafs and twigs.

Inspiration lies heavily with layering nature upon nature and ‘the symmetry in all things living’ which stems from the artists childhood in Iceland. When growing up the artist found nature there stark and unforgiving. Never seeing trees or colourful butterfies or exotic fowers – everything seemed grey. Now in retrospect, feels the complete opposite as though the colours and landscape are like nowhere else in the world. Each piece created by the artist is it’s own universe of botanicals, atmosphere and animals, each born and grown from the things that have inspired her since being a child in Iceland.

Williams’ work has become well known throughout the industry, 2013 saw the studio Highly Commended for ‘Best Use of Colour’ at the Dulux Colour Awards. In 2014 Kristjana has already won a D&AD award, a New York Festivals Grand Prix & First Prize and lastly shortlisted for the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity.

Under Construction

BY ELIRAN ASHRAF
@ VOL 16 ON MAR 01, 2018

The inspiration of my work came as I went full circle with my "textile heritage", watching my yemenite grandmother wearing her authentic clothing pieces in modern day Israel. 
These yemenite clothing pieces inspired by the local architecture have a strong sense of time and place. In my creation and research I am trying to express a sense of roots in a world with no boundaries. UNDER/CONSTRUCTION is a fashion brand inspired by the mix between urban and tribal elements.

3D Printing & Mass Customization

Matt Compeau and Bi-Ying Miao of Hot Pop Factory are very aware of the fact that digital fabrication technologies like 3D printing are becoming mainstream. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Toronto Vol. 20), they discuss the emerging new movement; one where you'll be able to design every object you own, from your kitchen knives to your cell phone. This is the new industrial revolution, a transition from mass-production to mass-customization.

3D Printing Biology

In today's Presentation of the Day, "3D Printing Biology" from PKN Miami Vol. 26, we hear from Corrie Van Sice, who works at the intersection of design, engineering, and biology. Corrie has used 3D-printing technology to engineer proto-cells (structures that look like real cells -- they include a nucleus and cell walls -- but not made from anything living).  She speaks on the under-discussed dilemma of "innovation" run amok and posits that if more scientists were to operate like artists (in that they could explore their studies without university or corporate control), development in their field might take new and exciting direction.
