Designing Desire


designing desireFACT presents Designing Desire, a pop-up exhibition and programme by three artists who are operating at the juncture of visual arts, technological production, scientific exploration and political activism to consider the future of 3D Printing within their diverse (but intimately connected) areas of interest.

Featuring Kuang-Yi Ku, Morehshin Allahyari and Joey Holder, the exhibition uses sexuality as a basis to explore the speculative possibilities of rapid prototyping. Through a series of works, talks and interactions with FACT’s audience, Kuang-Yi Ku, Joey Holder, and Morehshin Allahyari will consider how their practices unite in tackling the imposition of limits and regulations by the so-called ‘real’ world and how rapid prototyping and digital tools can help us to move past such restrictions.

Join us for the opening of Designing Desire from 6-8pm on Thursday 12 October.

The exhibition is developed with support from the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of China (Taiwan) and in partnership with Homotopia. The project will also be supported by the lab and Design department at Liverpool John Moores University.
