Design School Kolding
30 May–2 June 2017


How do we REDO our design education, our design practice, and our design research so that our knowledge comes to have an actual effect on how we live, from the micro level of the domestic to the macro level of politics? How do we train our students to become DOers and to confront the challenges that face the world in terms of social inclusion, climate/environment, and economic growth? How do we impact our disciplines and beyond?
The REDO biannual Cumulus 2017 conference in Kolding aims to playfully inspire, challenge and develop the role, relevance and scope of design, art and media in a global world with sustainability for people, planet and profit in mind. The overall aim of the conference is to create lasting impact in design and design education and initiate (future) actions.

Design School Kolding is nothing without the profound impact its students make on Denmark and on the world. We live and breathe through their efforts and are honoured that they chose Kolding for their education.

Our CUMULUS film tries to reflect that by showing the goal of the conference – to RE DO – through the breadth and range of their efforts.
We pride ourselves on our international approach and the film was produced and scripted by Barnabas Wetton, the motion graphics, cutting and editing took place in the Netherlands by one of our strongest teachers Léon Kranenburg. The sound was developed by Yossi Karutchi – a Beersheba born producer and musician who has won Danish Music Awards two years running. It is built up around a sonic description of Denmark and picks up on what Léon said he was looking for when the whole project started. In a moment of insight he said “give us all a sense of what the sound of Denmark tastes like”.

Thank you to Katrine Worsøe.
