Strangers and seemingly insignificant used objects are brought together in this project called Rooming My World, which explores the level of routine subconsciousness and creativity in different cities.
The installation is a room made out of exhibits created by various designers aka Object Translators. Each exhibit is called Strange•R – a term derived from the word “stranger” and R referring to “Re-live, Re-born, Re-use, Re-think and Re-create”. Strange•Rs are discarded or used objects that were transformed through a game-like process that re-interprets the experiences from strangers met in a city.
These re-interpretations by designers invited by [+O] and members of Singapore Creative Network will see the transformation of these objects into Strange•Rs, giving them a second life to tell the stories of their cities and inhabitants.
As this is an ongoing project, visitors are invited to participate in during the exhibition at 100%Design + Designersblock, Earl’s Court from 24th to 27th of September 2009.
[+O] is a multi-disciplinary collective and a platform for people of different background to explore, create and share thoughts together.
