Name of The Project

Name of The Project is a playground where elementary actions are repeated as a metaphor for design education, resulting in a simple space with its own  limits and possibilities. Students from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava demonstrate iteration processes through the act of painting, and seemingly ceaseless repainting. They work, and change, according to a shared schedule, receiving free time to relax, and logistic help from others. Upon completing a unit, a “whole-room painting”, they prepare the room for other students, and the process repeats until the end of Design Week. An important part of the students’ presence in their project is the possibility to meet fellow students and peers from Israeli schools. By inviting them to partake in the project, the students can get to know each other through shared physical work, and intellectual and/or informal communication, forming a basis for future collaborations with local academies.
