MAYFLY
Functional Collages

Until 21.11.2021

A dumpster is the no man’s land between functional objects and discarded material. Mayfly sculptures start their lifecycle in this vacuum.

Without any prior planning, the object is defined solely by the elements available. It is built out of salvaged components, with avoiding radical modifications and limiting the use of tools. Only working with the resources on the spot, the designer becomes subordinate to the materials they use, reversing the traditional roles between them and letting go of control.

In this mindset, the designer builds without the responsibilities of industrial practices, resulting in Mayfly sculptures. These makeshift collages embrace their new assigned functions in an additional lifecycle before finishing it in the dumpster where they came from.

MAK – Museum für angewandte Kunst

The MAK focuses on the role of applied art in the design of our living spaces. It operates at the interface of design, architecture and contemporary art in order to create new perspectives and explore boundary areas. The MAK would like to provide answers to the question as to how design can contribute to shaping the world and expanding possibilities for action and decision-making.
