Gleichzeitig ist REFLECT als Botschaft und Appell zu verstehen: We reflect. I reflect. You reflect. Der Besucher ist eingeladen am Messestand zu verweilen, dem Klang des Meeres aufmerksam zu folgen und sich den eigenen Reflexionen hinzugeben.
REFLECT not only describes the diversity of studies at the faculty of design in Aachen but reflects the conjunction between communication design and product design. The scope of the projects, which combine the various disciplines, ranges from two dimensional models, products and sculptures to moving images such as animations and videos in addition to spatial communication and installations. Furthermore, REFLECT symbolises the students’ efforts to conceptualise their visions and reflections about the ocean into an additional, perceptional dimension. Contemplating water as both element and media, experimentally analysing the reflection of light as well as its relation to functionality and technique were crucial for the exhibits developments and shapes.
REFLECT is meant to be a message and appeal: We reflect. I reflect. You reflect. Visitors are welcome to join and enjoy the sound of the ocean and to indulge in their own reflections.
