dc.description.abstractResearch Question: How can temporality be used to develop new strategies for the design of furniture? This exegesis documents the journey through my Masters of Design project Horological Furniture. An artefact’s temporal form is defined by changes manifest through use over time. In this project I have crafted furniture while considering the role of time as a design dimension. Normally we privilege the new; however with furniture, the temporal form is often one of devaluation and decay. My making has been guided by a Heuristic approach. I have employed a ‘research through design methodology’ of testing ideas through a cyclic process of observation, making and reflection. This text is divided into two distinct phases; the first is an exploration of immediacy and the second of longevity. These explorations parallel the horological modes of clock and calendar. Through research, direct observation, experimentation, making and use I have identified the potential for artefacts to operate in one of two temporal forms, specifically damage or diary. Damage and diary act as metaphors for the analogies of clocks and calendars. This project has affected the manner in which I perceive use, wear, and damage of artefacts. Damage or Diary will now be used as a schema to critique my ongoing practice and as a crucial tool to influence my making.en_NZ
