Design In Short featuring Maker
September 14, 2014
SIFF joins this year’s Seattle Design Festival with an evening of entertaining, informative short films about a variety of design missions and projects: including the work of inspiring designers and craftsmen, the intersection of dance and architecture, the history of iconic public-use structures, and a new feature on the rise of the Maker Movement.
Design in Short is a two hour program that features urban dancers performing on New York City’s newest skyscrapers (Skyscape and Sciame Winter), the history of Finland’s public phone booths (Puhelinkoppi (1882-2007)), a look at the creators iconic typography (Font Men), a peek inside a stunning private home designed to also be a public art museum (Lyon Housemuseum), a contemplative travelogue of iconic Parisian architecture (Errance), the design and craft behind in a stunning light installation (Making of Montreux), and a message of inspiration from Ira Glass (The Gap).
The program concludes with Maker, the new hour-long documentary about the rise of the “do-it-yourself” movement from director Mu-Ming Tsai (whose previous film Design & Thinking was featured in our 2012 Seattle Design Festival program).
