We are pleased to present Material Matters, the exam work from the Master Program in Applied Art and Design from HDK-Valand Steneby. The Master Program is composed of three specializations: Metal Art, Textile-Body-Space and Wood Oriented Furniture Design.
The work represents the culmination of two years of investigative and is the result of the students’ individual inquiries into a range of explorations. The students represented in this exhibition come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring an equally broad range of questions to their work. We see inquiries related to materiality, process, form, behavior and perception. We see questions related to how to and what if. We are asked and challenged in our perception and experiences of objects and ideas. We are presented with where they are now in their investigations.
