Design students from Valparaiso University showed the first results from their workshop with residents of Pedernal. These are early days, as the students explore how products might be developed that relate to life in this remote village and also activity engage the residents in their production. The next phase is the response of the residents themselves. Let’s see what unfolds. Given the interruptions due to the closure of the university for 50 days, the results are quite remarkable.
The images also include some recent shots from Santiago and can be seen in full here. This includes the ironic exhibition Hecho en Chine (Made in China) by Chilean painter Bruna Truffi and the Museum of Shadows, otherwise known as the Museo de Artes Decorativas in Santiago.
