Design Office began in 1980 as a way to practice art outside of the gallery system. The first projects involved friends’ apartments. D.O. was to be sort of a reflective intervention into the lifestyle of the clients. Objects and a physical change to the interior based on the personality and desires/needs of the client. The design activity was not meant to be well executed or look a certain way, have a certain look or style. If anything it was a lo-fi aesthetic using or recycling other aesthetics.
Aaron Curry: 50_Drawings, is a portal into the process of Curry’s oeuvre. Comprised of 500 drawings printed lavishly with a brown spot color on pink Astrobright paper. The last eight pages are intentionally left blank to allow for up to 8 unique drawings, which then effects the quantity of the title of the book. First 50 editions are allocated for 500 Drawings.
