Creative Skills NetworkKacper Hamilton has been invited to be part of the recently launched Creative Skills Network. CSN is an online community connecting emerging designers and artists to established practitioners, professionals and inspirational educators for live onscreen skills training and guidance.Founded by designer and educator Sebastian Bergne during the first Covid19 lockdown, both as a support and learning resource for emerging creative entrepreneurs and as a curated platform for established creatives to offer the benefit of their experience through the live online medium we have become so familiar with.Within an expanding creative industry people have less traditional career paths with spontaneous needs and desires to learn new skills and be supported by experts in real time. There is therefore an increasing demand from creatives who are beyond or outside the traditional education system.The hope is that the Creative Skills Network becomes a way of linking creative practitioners of all generations and responds to these needs in a way that compliments regular education channels and values the knowledge and experience of established practitioners in the various creative fields.

'Mass of Time’ at Cube Design Museum
MASS OF TIME - A conceptual instrument designed by Kacper Hamilton is being displayed at a new exhibition entitled ‘Time Matters’ at the Cube Design Museum in the Netherlands. The exhibition brings together 30 contemporary time-related works by well-known artists and designers from around the world. Link to the exhibition website. Exhibition dates: 1st June 2020 – 3rd January 2021.
Further details about exhibition and photos here.“Designers and artists have always had a pioneering approach to contemporary subject matters and time is an extremely fascinating theme - the very word evokes a whole spectrum of possible meanings. Encompassing art and design, these visionary projects provide a new, open interpretation of time. The exhibits highlight the relativity of time as they suggest both the desire for a vertiginous acceleration or the need for a slower pace. In this respect, all projects reflect the contemporary world with its contradictions and multiplicity of points of view.” - Cube Design MuseumSee and learn about Mass of Time here.

'Minarets' at La Cité du Vin Exhibition
A new set of Minarets by Kacper Hamilton and Ezgi Turksoy have been included in an exhibition in Bordeaux, France. La Cité du Vin presents Mind-blowing! When art and design take on glass from 15 March to 30 June 2019.
Nearly a hundred glass exhibits produced in the past twenty years were unvelied by the Foundation for wine culture and civilisations. Glass artworks, drawings, projects and performances as well as video works to explore, through the exhibition, the creative process of transformation. From sand to glass, from grape to wine, from the utilitarian object to the original work.
The bottle, the carafe or the drinking glass are therefore the starting point for a broader reflection, leading to the creative diversions of artists and designers who invent unusual and often poetic works.
By focusing on transformation and in particular glassmaking processes that combine tradition and experimentation, the exhibition also echoes the winemaker's craft, following the work of Stéphane Derenoncourt (biodynamic producer) over the course of a vintage.
Mind-blowing! has been created by the Foundation for wine culture and civilisations and guest curator Bettina Tschumi.
