Design Walk

Design Walk - an annual event that allows to look behind the scenes of design process. This year's theme "Design and History" is especially vividly highlighted by the venue of the event - the Museum of the Occupation of Latvia. The program includes eight design walks in the new opened exhibition with its design team - design office H2E. The design authors will introduce various aspects of the exhibition from designers’ professional and personal point of view. The culmination of the event will be the discussion led by playwright and scriptwriter Lauris Gundars about the basic question of any historical exposition - to prove to the visitor that the narrative also applies to his own life, without losing the set of historical facts. Program: 10.00–11.00 "Design concept" with designer Ingūna Elere Research-vision-concept-project. What do we want to say and how to say it in a visual language? Design concept as an abstract vision that must become visible. The role and responsibility of the designer in the communication of history. 11.00–12.00 "Content interpretation process" with art historian Baiba Grīnberga Collaboration between museum and designers to reveal content in the form of an exhibition. Information acquisition, structuring, preparation for transformation in design. 12.00–13.00 "Space, tectonics, materiality" with designer Ģirts Arājs The foundation of the exhibition - a technically challenging and particularly responsible stage. Process, challenges, entering an unfinished space, adaptation, refinements, hidden communications. 12.30–13.30 "Graphic’s story" with designer Laura Lorence Transforming the content into the visual form. Color, shape, typeface, drawing and other elements as tools for content interpretation. Graphic designer as part of the exhibition creation team. 13.00–14.00 "To tell without words" with designer Ieva Timoško Graphic design in close-up - its possibilities and potential in exposition. Language to convey messages and provoke emotions. The concept of graphics and the use of its elements in the exposition. 14.00–15.00 "Interior and process" with designer Mārtiņš Vītols Museum interior and exposition as interdependent/inseparable elements. The process of creating the interior of the museum lobby as a strategic starting point for the exhibition. Variants, variations. Continuation of the story of the process in the exposition. 15.00–16.00 "Light Path" with playwright Lauris Gundars A dramatist once said: "Nonsense! There is nothing of drama in the expositions: there are rules of static composition.". Lauris Gundars wants to argue and prove the opposite. Among other aspects of the exhibition, we will talk about why we should talk about it at all. 16.00-17.00 "Experience design" with designer Holgers Elers Turn data and facts into stories, stories into ideas, ideas into experience. The role of experience design in the creation of exhibition design. 17.00–19.00 discussion "Design and history" The basic problem of any historical exposition is to prove to the visitor that the narrative also applies to his own life, without losing the set of historical facts. Creating an effective connection between the exhibition and the visitor also means creating a "living museum". That is, where you have to go not only in the name of the past, but also in the name of the future. The discussion is led by playwright Lauris Gundars. Participants: Kārlis Dambītis, historian of the Museum of the Occupation of Latvia. Sarmīte Kolāte, publicist; Ivo Briedis, director/playwright; Ingūna Eler,e H2E designer.
