Boredom is the well-spring of creativity and the harbinger of mischief. Here, hiding under the guise of mall going, blasé, suburban disaffection, are the four tenets of Manual for Speed’s Artist Residency Summer 2015. Our model channels Chaos, Color, Motion and Trajectory into a tumult of emotion seething below the surface of the seemingly benign lifestyle of your otherwise basic teen suburbanite. Her passivity perfectly underscores the vibrant action in this Sigrid Calon designed jersey.
Sigrid Calon’s work is formed through the desire and the curiosity to investigate, discover and create. Making new connections and to look differently at what we take for granted. This investigative mentality is separate from a set working method or usage of a certain type of material: what does the room demand? The assignment? Or the moment? Research into identity is very important in her work: what is the essence? Is there a new truth? Through these questions, Calon imagines the chaos of possibilities in a clear and pure manner. Aspects such as intuition, rationality and playfulness are of importance here. Calon searches for wonderment and is inspired by the things around her, preferably things that are meant for something different: materials, but also objects, situations or spaces. To what extent can you explore the autonomy of applied data?
