Stefan Lie ‘Stream of Consciousness’
Opening Reception Thursday 15 June, 6- 8pm

Exhibition 15 June – 9 July

Nicky Ginsberg, President of Chippendale Creative Precinct and Director of Kensington Contemporary is delighted to present the third instalment of cutting edge visual technologies and vibrant ideas from our partners over the road at the UTS Faculty of Design. Join us Thursday 15 June 6- 8pm at Kensington Contemporary to welcome Stefan Lie’s ‘Stream of Consciousness’, an exploration of three dimensional products, and how we perceive and interpret them through form and materiality.

Lie is an academic design practitioner and lecturer in Integrated Product Design at UTS, whose investigative research process aims to develop new knowledge concerning our experience and interaction with a range of products and objects. By exploring how materials can be given form through different manufacturing processes, Lie’s practice engages with a multitude of techniques applied to product design practice.

‘Stream of Consciousness’ is the result of newly developed techniques of forming three dimensional ceramic products by coating cylindrical objects of various materials in clay and experimenting with a range of form giving techniques. The innovative and abstract objects are inspired by 2D images of data visualisations, and are the preliminary stage of Lie’s investigative process. Representing moments in his stream of consciousness as he experiments with the material and its temporal limitations, the works are seemingly unfamiliar and impossible forms made from a familiar material.

Lie is an internationally recognised designer whose works have been exhibited throughout Australia, Europe and Japan. Lie’s work is included in the permanent collection of MAAS (the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences).

Following Stefan Lie, Kensington Contemporary is excited to continue its partnership with the UTS School of Design with work by Head of School Prof. Dr. Lawrence Wallen.
