Exhibition identity of 3rd Year Product Design work at the intersection of technology and craft. Open to the public at Edinburgh College of Art Sculpture Court and running April 24th to April 28th.

Major Externality Crisis was the first exhibition by the Product Design department at this stage of the course for many years, and provided students with an opportunity to showcase their intimidating plethora of objects to the unremitting public, in a field evolving and modernising with such intense speed, both within the College’s walls and in the wider sphere of product work. 

The exhibition was constructed around the theme of destruction, particularly of wasted iterations and prototypes; and as such, a component of the exhibition was the ‘Grave of Countless Iterations’; a pile of the countless prototypes created, and then left behind in pursuit of an undergraduate degree. Mistakes, failures and iterations; all ending up on the heap—their value shining bright for a brief moment during assessment and then, waning forever.
