Enya, little fire, is a social event that celebrates the joy of sharing a meal in a condominium setting. It re-creates the experience of gathering around the fire  and aims to create meaningful connections at the comfort and style of your condominium. It will not only enhance the dinner party experience for both the host and the guests but it will help differentiate one condominium from the other at the dense condominium market by adding value to the building where this service is provided. 

Designed by Zeynep Sen, in 2013 Toronto while studying at OCAD University.

Second Skin is an interactive costume designed for the Metropolis Festival that took place in 2011 in Copenhagen. 

It reacts to user's speed, rotation and altitude. The first prototype has two modes that can be activated by a switch on the main board. The first mode is activated by the speed of rotation meaning the faster it is rotated, the brighter LEDs got. And the second act reacts to the speed in which the altitude changes. 

The final costume is made of two layers of sheer fabric, special effects silicone, LEDs, sensors, cables and a wire around the edges for structure.

Process


Our starting point was the ribbon used in rhythmic gymnastics and 'The Walker ' that we got to see during a trip to Otto Bock. We perceived them to be both effortless and beautiful. The brainstorming sessions, material explorations, sketch models, prototype testing sessions informed the final piece.

The installation pieces, two Ceiling Pieces and Insides Hallway,  aim to enhance Schiele's work by providing an opportunity to the visitors to not only look but also touch and feelThe proposed space consist of three separate areas: 

  • An area with his early paintings that mainly focuses on sexuality as a subject matter
  • An area that highlights his later work, which consist of many portraits
  • A screening room for Exzess und Bestrafung, a biographical movie

 

 

Insides Hallway is inspired by one of Egon Schiele’s most commonly used subject matter: Eroticism. 

 

The Ceiling Pieces are inspired by Egon Schiele’s brush strokes in the ‘Portrait of Edith Schiele in a Striped Dress' 

PROCESS

Egon Schiele's life was researched. Case studies about people's perception of Schiele's work along with his life were some of the departure points for this proposal.

The proposed chess set aims to bring two people together to spend time together. The final is made of corrugated card board and produced through laser cutting to avoid waste material. The chess board also acts as a storage unit for the pieces and can be flipped over when done using.

MUJI's core values, aesthetics, product range along with target customer segment were researched to develop a new product for the brand. MUJI is distinguished by its minimalism, emphasis on recycling, and avoidance of waste in production and packaging and these also were the departure points for this project.

This research project Supporting Successful Transitions To Self-Employment In Art And Design was prepared for The Ontario Human Capital Research & Innovation Fund (OHCRIF) Ministry Of Training, Colleges & Universities.

The research proves the need for a more robust support system at OCAD University as the art and design students transition from their post-secondary education into the creative economy in Toronto as freelancers. This project aims to be beneficial to the post-secondary sector and labour market policy by maximizing the potential of the creative economymitigating the conditions & risks of precarious employment.

The report identifies student/ alumni needs, analyses the market, while examining the existing models to determine the best models for the potential support system (service).
