Material witness

There's an interesting review (courtesy of Art Life) of the show ReFrame at Ivan Dougherty Gallery, which places design in an art context.

Financial pundits predict that the future of capitalism is about making less money out of more things, catering forever expanding niche tastes. Fordism is dead. Yet we can’t have a spectrum of wide consumption predicated on the idea of good values without mass production. How will humble artists and designers carry that notion into the wider world?
