Design with the other 90% CITIES

I wrote a piece in the book Design with the Other 90%: CITIES. The book and exhibition was curated by Cynthia Smith. For the interested, there is a traveling exhibition in the following cities.

Sept. 14-Jan. 7, 2013
Kemper Art Museum at Washington University, St. Louis, Mo.

On view through Jan. 5, 2013
Mercy Corps’ Action Center and the Museum of Contemporary Craft, Portland, Ore.

Do check it out if it is near your neighborhood.

Speaking of design… This is a fishing basket that Dipesh Pabari repurposed into a lovely lampshade. I think it is pretty cool.
