Almost all of the 14 artists and studios invited to be part of the Touch Design recycled-materials exhibit of products happening this weekend in NYC are Latin American, most notably Brazilian—something that could indicate where the pioneering trends in this area are coming from in the near future. Besides Estúdio Manus and Domingos Tótora (two names that have been getting more press recently) other up and comers/participants include Tatiana Sperhacke, whose website shows a skirt made from plastic spoons, art made from found natural material by Thomas Beale and the surprisingly delightful manifestations from Blindesign.
Opening reception: 18 May 2008, 7-9pm
