The fascination with the aesthetic tension between old and new is typified by the output of designers such as Maarten Baas, Astrid Krogh, Random International and Humans Since 1982 who utilize contemporary technologies and materials to create works that communicate at a strongly human level. Krogh’s optic fiber tapestries use traditional techniques to otherworldly ends, while Random International’s A Study of Time re-captures importance of light and shadow to the understanding of the passage of time within early civilizations.
