We will share results of an ongoing EU grant project. The project is concerned with preserving memories of renowned artists whose work inspiration is traceable to a specific location and giving an opportunity to young designers to learn from the masters. This project brings young designers into the studios of well-known practicing artists who are willing to share his/her experience in the area where he/she creates and trace the unique shapes and visceral landscapes of particular locations across Europe that brought a specific, unique and identifiable language into their works.
In addition to the studio visits we will also record an interview with each artist that will preserve precious memories, views, thoughts and ideas in the artist's own words. This way the ideas and thoughts will be accessible to young designers without any theoretical interpretation. These interviews will be used for further research and create a base for an on-line interview database.
