Minding the Digital

Design Society
Sea World Culture & Arts Centre, China
2017 - 18

Minding the Digital is the inaugural exhibition of Design Society, a design hub established by China Merchants Shekou and Victoria and Albert Museum in Shenzhen.

We live in an era defined by unprecedented digitalisation—in China and beyond. As the medium between people and technology, digital design is shaping the way we interact with, each other and the world. 

The ubiquitous network has become the all-powerful facilitator for everything to take place digitally. We have experienced an incredible infiltration of mobile phones, smart wearables and responsive environments which are widening our senses and capabilities. These daily experiences are all moulded by meticulous design processes.

Featuring about 60 China-based and international works from leading and emerging creative practices, Minding the Digital offers a journey of exploration into how the field of design is responding to this phenomenon.

The exhibition illustrates how digital design is inspiring new ways of making things, connecting with the others and with society at large. It demonstrates creative possibilities in embracing the digital future.

The exhibition was designed by MVRDV, while its visual identity and graphic applications were designed by Thonik.

Design Society, located at Sea World Culture & Arts Centre in Shenzhen, is a major cultural institution co-established by China Merchants Shekou and V&A Museum in London.
