This series of 5 designs were created as costumes for the opera “The Death of Graphic Design/No Exit” in the Summer 2016. For the Chamber Collection #3, DDG has produced a special single edition of 5 blankets in merino wool. The five blankets display each a theme from the narrative of the opera, being love, jealousy, ambition, revenge and resurrection. The system for this opera produces both narrative, visuals and beats from an algorithm that DDG has written and which is a contemporary turn on current events around displacement. As designers we ask ourselves: can displacement serve a role in promoting alternatives? Can we harness cooperation and post-signature as weapons against isolation? How would such a design practice function?
