OUT.L.IN.E, ABSURD OBJECT
2018, Design competition by Preciosa
OUT.L.IN.E is an conceptual object that aims to highlight the absurdity of today's world. The world in which technology immediately surrounds us, making our lives easier, connecting us with places and people otherwise inaccessible to us. But also the world where we cease to perceive "real" reality, our feelings and thoughts so easily. Do we really live in a bubble defined by the technologies we use?
A purely interior form - a picture, framing a purely exterior theme - an athletic track cutout. Two-layer board in the frame, with Preciosa crystals on one side, reminiscent of tartan, rough coarse surface exclusively for outdoor activities. On the other side, the same resin-covered layer shows almost the same image, just unified, smooth, delightful, unrealistic? Nothing suggests that you just need to turn the frame over to see that reality on the other side can be either brilliantly coarse or crystal clear.
