Active pioneers of the Chinese creative scene will present their work and vision of Shanghai today. Shanghai is a vibrant city in constant movement and seeking for its own identity through the work of its creative people who want to make a change.
The Purpose of this gathering is to illustrate and confront different contemporary points of view on the constantly moving city of Shanghai. The conference will address the question of how to express a personal feeling and understanding of the world around us, through a chosen media, be it an object, a video or a sentence. The intention is also to undertake contemporary problems inspired by the slogan: ”Better City, Better Life”, such as ecology, are cities compatible with natural systems? Or, cultural heritage, how can we preserve our specificities?

The conference target will be the general public, more specifically, the students participating in the STREET MADE Design Workshop.
Please find here with the detailed explanation of the Workshop.

Conclusion

01. INTRODUCTION

Some say «Shanghai is not China». Some say Shanghai is the city of the future.

Shanghai is a contemporary city, a city in perpetual movement, building up and out day and night. The population, the architecture, the cuisine, illustrate the superimposition and accumulation of past and present influences.

Shanghai is a mix between ancient and new, between skyscrapers and traditional houses, between cars and bicycles. The city is filled with contrasts which provoke both a charming and uncomfortable feeling, projecting its beauty and strength.

The population of Shanghai takes over the streets and fills them with sounds, movements and objects. Some people work in the streets to earn money. To live, people develop their own tools, they develop street design, design to survive. They make their everyday life objects to cook, cut, sew, transport. Hybrid objects are exhibited in the streets, accumulated, stacked, assembled with function as only concern.

02.CONTENT

Shanghaï street made aims to show the city today: a precarious equilibrium, by putting forward the contrasts which create the energy and the unique atmosphere of this vibrant city.

The work focuses on four main aspects:

- INSPIRATIONAL RESSOURCE FOR CREATIVITY in all artistic fields. The goal of this project is to create applications, which witness our time through the analysis of systems created by the language of Shanghai street furniture.

- HISTORICAL APPROACH since its goal is to show today’s era, to freeze a moment of history in continuous change.

- ECOLOGICAL APPROACH since the players themselves apply a process involving material recuperation and recycling.

- SOCIAL APPROACH as we observe the skills developed by the people in need in order to complete their everyday actions: earn money, eat, clean…

Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet
Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick
heads up! Other then that, great blog!

I have found that the key to running a popular website is making sure the visitors you are getting are interested in your subject matter. There is a company that you can get targeted visitors from and they let you try the service for free for 7 days. I managed to get over 300 targeted visitors to day to my site.
