On October 3rd, Amsterdam's Pakhuis de Zwijger was packed for the fourth Ninety Minutes of Frame. Frame Magazine's Editor-in-Chief Robert Thiemann opened the night with a visual column about merging body and space. A lively keynote by Lucy McRae was filled with video campaigns showing her adventures to create videos of the human body with integrated photoshop filters – without photoshop – and her recently unveiled project 'Prep your Body for Space'. The first in a series of experiments, this vacuum-driven zero gravity chamber intends to prepare the body for living in space. Visitors to London Design Festival's design junction could test out McRae's device.
While making her Claim to Frame, Maaike Fransen took the audience by surprise when she donned a homemade iPad communication device. Her presentation then got physical when she brought out models wearing her Hoarding (Dis)orders collection. Arne Hendriks towered over his audience as he delivered facts about cheese's relationship with upward trends of tallness. His project The Incredible Shrinking Man proposes to reduce the human species to 50 cm to minimise our high demands for food and health risks.
Join us on October 25th at 8pm for a special edition of Ninety Minutes during Dutch Design Week. RSVP for Ninety Minutes of Frame: Dutch Design What? and watch the ceremony of the Frame Public Award of the Dutch Design Awards right after!
