Is transformative repair a response to problems of obsolescence and waste in product design? Does it have the potential to create an emergent service market for design and arts professionals?
Consider these questions and many more with a panel of experts including Object Therapy curator and project designer Guy Keulemans, designer Henry Wilson, ceramicist Naomi Taplin and hosted by ABC Sydney’s Simon Marnie.
This event is related to the exhibition Object Therapy at ADC until 7 June.
The project was conceived and first presented by Hotel Hotel in collaboration with UNSW Art & Design and the ANU School of Art and Design.
