This year marks the bicentenary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, the perennial gothic horror story of creator and creature. An exhibition will be held during London Design Festival 2018 of new work by seventeen designers each responding to Frankenstein’s narrative. The text will act as the connective tissue between a diverse range of design practices which include transforming environments through products and performance, designing process-driven objects, mounting participatory workshops and working in the digital domain.
Deciding to interpret the novel as an allegory for contemporary design practice, the exhibited projects will investigate and bring new meanings to topics ranging from artificial intelligence, hacking and emergent technologies, to the place and moment of creation; themes central to Shelley’s two hundred year old story and equally relevant to design today.
Through the production of new work in response to Frankenstein, HORROR SHOW examines subjects that appear normal today but might easily be categorised as horrific the near future.
