PostSpectacular: V&A Ornamental Installation

Posted by Will Hudson,

Karsten Schmidt’s latest work for the V&A looks like it’s well worth a visit to the museum. An interactive installation as part of their activities around the Cult Of Beauty Aestheticism exhibition, Karsten proposed to create a “modern, stripped down interpretation of his [William Morris] pattern work mixed with classic islamic/indian geometric influences and then realised this project using different digital fabrication techniques”. The result can be seen here as well as an insight into the making of process.
