“Ernesto Oroza works and thinks through the potentials of what he calls the “vernacular production” of the periodo especial in Cuba—design works compelled by an extended economic depression following the collapse of the country’s Soviet Union–linked economy in the late 1980s. Having both been trained and taught in Havana’s schools of design, Oroza has also led student workshops examining themes in his work and lectured widely, most recently at the BMW Guggenheim Lab in Berlin and the Ecole Nationale Supérieur de Création Industrielle in Paris.”

Accumulation and raw materials (fragments)

Accumulation and raw materials (fragments)

To accumulate is to foresee our anticipated needs and to respond in advance. Accumulation is not storage, but the collection of ideas of use, of constructive solutions, of technical systems and archetypes that flourish during a crisis. By accumulating, we create a mental map of what is stockpiled, an echo of the potential of each object or saved fragment. Accumulation proposes […]
