Description: Render Tender adopts the set-up of a fictional reiki studio that channels remote healing thought the aid of projected visuals and a calming soundscape. It considers how acts of care persist and can be performed and experience in intimate isolation. The artist draws on reiki, a form of spiritual healing operating through trust and touch that offers a poignant and adaptable model of sustaining intimacy in a pandemic where physical contact must be negotiated.
Definition of Design by Kim Goodwin (For the context of his book):
… is the craft of visualising concrete solutions that serve human needs and goals within certain constraints.
Critique on Social Practice Art
Personally, Art has always been a reflection of the world and its society. No matter how whacky or abstract the art is, it always expresses the creator’s state of mind/being.
Currently pursuing a degree in Nanyang Technological University’s Arts, Design & Media programme, I aspire to be an individual and an artist that can inspire change in people and the world. To be an Experience designer, I focus on producing quality & culturally relevant products, processes, services, events, omni-channel journeys, and environments. With a cross-discipline perspective, I consider multiple aspects of a brand or business from their product, packaging, environment to standards of service. A well designed experience will support and influences human behaviour through usability, accessibility, desirability, usefulness and impact.
