DESCRIPTION Designed 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, vessels, and clocks, and more. Some designers embrace processes, natural or mechanical. Others turn to form or material. For some, the means of production serves to illustrate time, while others utilize performance and/or endurance. Designed 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.
