Hi Failure is an exhibition of new work by Sebastian Craig. The curated window display launches two new design objects available for purchase at tenderproduct: Future Grass and Minimal Object. Originally developed after a dream that Craig experienced some time in 2003, Future Grass is a multi-purpose design object as well as a small patch of green artificial turf. Minimal Object (Decorative Gate) is a miniature electromagnetically-sensitive portable sculpture. It responds to the coincidental generation of what Craig calls an “entry point” (electromagnetic signal) and marks it with suitable austerity—making the invisible, visible via a sequence of flashing light.
Hi Failure also documents Sebastian Craig’s experimental journeys through a range of design disciplines. Craig’s work is generated through auto-didactic trial and error. He has an ongoing interest in the crossover between language and architecture and the ways in which each of these coded mediums can function as the other, a quality he has exploited within the product shop’s window space.
