This week EUSAS welcomes Dev Joshi from Random International.
Random International was founded in 2005 by former Royal College of Art students, Hannes Koch, Florian Ortkrass and Stuart Wood. They set up the collaborative studio with the intention to expand the perspective of contemporary artistic practice.They develop installations that encourage a performative relationship between the animate (audience) and inanimate (object or space). The studio likes to question aspects of identity and autonomy in the post-digital age. They were the creators of the massively successful Rain Room, which allows visitors to play in the rain without getting wet. It was first installed at London's Barbican Centre, and its popularity led to a tour of locations including New York and Shanghai before it was moved to LACMA.
Dev Joshi, Associate Director at Random International, is an award-winning designer who likes solving problems. He has been working at Random International for seven years as a designer and technologist, working with people across a wide range of disciplines and a number of sectors to provide solutions to their design needs.
