THINGS THAT HAPPENED: FIELD ESSAYS. Onomatopee, Eindhoven, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 64 pp. 30 x 30 cm. ISBN 9789491677342 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: The wonderful work of emerging Icelandic designer Brynjar Siguroarson and his curious encounter with British anthropologist Tim Ingold are the focus of Sophie Krier's third publication in the series Field Essays. A selection of Siguroarson's previously unpublished drawings, photographs and writings of handmade details, myths, darkness, isolation, micro-history, memory, stones, animals and the supernatural illustrates the designer's instinctive bridging of the fields of design and anthropology. Rounding out the publication are a foreword by design visionary and trend forecaster Li Edelkoort, a conversation with anthropologist Tim Ingold on the origin of things, and a 12-inch vinyl for which Siguroarson has collected, recorded and mixed stories on musical soundscapes. Field Essays, part of an ongoing research project exploring the tactile world of design thinking and making initiated by Sophie Krier in 2008, takes the form of publications, exhibitions, debates and educational workshops.
