OBJCT Gallery invites you to experience our latest exhibition addressing the intersection between art and design.

“Bio-design” is the antitheses of “hi-tech design”. While is may not conform to linguistic rules completely it is intended to mean, “Design based on the truths presented by the living bodies found in Mother Nature”. Today’s advanced engineering technology, centering around electronics, often has something inhuman about it as seen in the word “high technology” or “hi-tech”. The words “human-tech” and “high-touch” were created as the opposite of “hi-tech”.

The former refers to a human type of engineering technology and the latter to a more substantial humanism. These words express the earnest desire of not wishing to lose the human touch, of wanting to become more human, “bio-design” contains an even more fervent desire, at the bottom of which lies a design philosophy, highly critical of the advanced technology society, (This must not be confused with “bio-technology” or “bio-tech” which refer to bio-engineering and genetic engineering.)

“The earth is round, all the heavenly bodies are round; they all move on round or elliptical orbits. This same image of circular globe-shaped mini worlds orbiting around each other follows us right down to the microcosms. We are even aroused by round forms in species propagation related eroticism. Why should I join the straying mass who want to make everything angular? I am going to pursue Galileo Galilei's philosophy: my world is also round”. —Luigi Colani

Technorganic -  Part One explores the crafty side of "bio-design"... the juxtaposition of technological materials manipulated by the human touch creates a microcosmic world that explodes in macro 3D.. soon to come Techonorganic - Part Two.. where the process becomes the medium and the message...
