A Deflated Icon - LC2.2

Orson's graduation project - ‘a Deflated Icon - LC2.2’ - focusses on how we perceive iconic objects. Here he looked at the ‘in-between phase of an iconic object, and how this intermediate phase can develop a unique form language which will breathe new life into these existing recognizable objects.



here is a constant need for a new creation, however through re-interpreting existing objects we can manipulate people’s preconceived ideas and value of objects through a new form language on recognizable objects.

This project was shown at OBJECT Rotterdam 2020 in the Haka Building.
