The Study is an interactive video installation showing the processes involved in The Lab. As design moves further to a more digital and sometimes sterile practice The Study openly engages the viewer with the tactile and subversive elements of making involved in sustainable design processes. Naturally dyed fabric hangs in layers around the room and video mapping shows the natural dye processes used to create the fabric. This is overlaid with investigations into Vietnamese language and type, playing on the diacritics and the tonal uniqueness of the Vietnamese language.
The viewer is able to change the projection through an interactive device the display of which uses type, colour and texture of indigenous Vietnamese processes and languages to let the viewer immerse themselves in various emotional states through, texture, colour and process as well as language and type - mirroring the complexity of human emotion through the elements of making and language.
