A VIEW TO ALTERATION ° EINE SKIZZIERUNG UNSERER UMWELT
With her works Yolanda Kylombo seeks to create a synergy of art and design.
The tables of the series „A VIEW TO ALTERATION - eine Skizzierung unserer Umwelt“ shall inspire con- versations, thoughts and provoke actions.
Every table of the series „ A View to Alteration, eine Skizzierung unserer Umwelt“ underlines different aspects of the theoretical analysis :
Through the open display of the roots, the table „See Your Roots“ reminds us of our natural necessi- ties, which are, as Adorno says, replaced by „suggerierten Bedürfnissen“(desired non-essentials)
The interspace of the table „Shadows Of Influence“ is filled with fuid. Movable golden surfaces emble- matise/illustrate the interaction between human, object and environment.
When the golden areas get moved, their shadows change accordingly.
This allows for the table „ACT!“ to still be filled and invites in a figurative sense to act and to change the shadows that are cast by you.
