Design Miami Basel 2009

Design Miami Basel left the Markthalle and is now located at the back of Art Basel. In addition to the 27 participating international design galleries, Design Miami Basel 2009 features the Designers of the Future Award Installation, a special exhibition by Marc Newson featuring several of the designers exclusive works including rare prototypes and private commissions, and 3 Satellite exhibitions by rAndom International, Carpenters Workshop Gallery and Maarten Baas.

VernissageTV is going to publish episodes on the Satellite exhibitions with rAndom International and Carpenters Workshop Gallery, soon. This video includes a glimpse at Maarten Baas’ work Real Time. For this exhibition, Maarten Baas has assumed the role of film director to re-conceptualize traditional clock forms. From the old style analog alarm to the modern digital time counter, he creates the devices from zero, inventing new languages for the interfaces and the external housing. Through lyrical, theatrical narratives, Baas animates time with true and living lancets, involving hundreds of actors filmed in real-time intervals of 12 or 24 hours.
