Design by Time explores how the notion of the dynamic passage of time can be embodied within design objects. Examples come from many sectors of the design world: textiles, carpets, ceramics, lighting fixtures, fashion, clocks and furniture for example. Some designers embrace processes, natural and mechanical. Some translate durational activities into visual forms, such as music. Design by Time is the first exhibition to identify and bring together works from known and emerging designers, in the US and abroad, whose interest is in expressing the passage of time, a visual expression of life, through the design of objects.
