Brendan Dawes: Produced For Use

Brendan Dawes, New Adventures, January 2011

It seems everyone is on a “journey” of some kind these days, and Brendan Dawes is no exception. His journey is trying to become a better maker of things and to learn from the humble often seemingly simple masterpieces that he bumps into everyday. In this session Brendan will share his love of making inspired by his continual obsession with simplicity and creating objects that are produced for use. Ultimately though it comes down to this: nobody needs to sharpen their pencil by inserting it into the arse of a plastic cat.
