DESIGN-MADE is a new contemporary design event that debuted their first show in Sydney, Australia, presenting collections of products from rising Australian interior designers. The show demonstrated that design is not just for a small niche of elite consumers anymore but has something for everyone and aims to change buyer-behavior to support local and original design.
Remember photography? Back in the eighties Martin Thompson was in the darkrooms of the Royal College of Art, carefully agitating a tray of developer, patiently waiting for an image to appear on a blank sheet of photographic paper. A stop bath, a fix and a wash later, he would usually shuffle back to the enlarger to try again. “I was never satisfied with a ‘straight’ photograph” says Martin, “it just wasn’t enough. I was experimenting with multiple exposures, dodging, burning, toning and painting on my photographs. I was trying anything. It was a bit hit and miss in those days”. The work he did produce was good enough to be used by eighties style magazines ‘The Face’ and ‘Blitz’ but in the darkroom the possibilities were limited. Then everything went digital. Suddenly the possibilities were endless.
