This project is about finding a concept for a design that the user can complete through his or her own perception and imagination. “The unconscious identifies with the specific autonomy of the user,” Konrad Bialowas says. Konrad investigates the spaces and materials of a design. A void within a design can describe the relationships of the construction. What effects and possibilities does it offer? He develops the idea of ‘in between’, meaning that the actual designs are not considered a final destination. Instead, his design proposals suggest a gateway to a particular theory and idea. Seeking a relevant context, he looked at transportation and logistics, where objects in transit resemble the ‘in between’ state. His goal in this project is to capture the temporary state reflected in transportation and logistics and make it permanent in the form of a collection.
