Shapeshifters is an exhibition born out of these current corona times. As many turn to digital platforms as a quick fix, we forget that there are still possibilities to share physicality with each other if we are flexible and clever. All we need is to bend and flow; to change our shape within the regulations. We cannot gather or touch, but we can still move around in public space and tap into the physical systems that are running, like supermarkets, take out deliveries, parks, and the many windows we pass on our way. The graduating students of Rietveld Academie’s designLab present a group exhibition of small but meaningful actions that celebrate our ability to physically connect even when apart.
