‘Beautiful Mess’ explores and blurs the boundaries between art and design.
Art and artistic design are basically the same thing: creation. It’s the context that surrounds the piece, which defines it as art or as design.
The Beautiful Mess pieces question distinctions between sculpture and design through the inclusion of the user in the creative process.
The series, as a sculptural installation, aims to generate emotional responses in the viewer by provoking an interaction with the objects.
Giving a phisical function to an sculpture is also another way to make it become a design object.
However, Beautiful Mess leaves it to the viewer to decide whether a piece is a sculpture, a weird seat or even both at the same time.
