London – For its last project under the moniker The T/Shirt Issue, the Berlin design collective spent six months in residence at the Victoria and Albert Museum to create Dream-Land, on display during the 2014 London Design Festival.

Inspired by the 1844 Edgar Allan Poe poem of the same name, ‘in which a dream voyager arrives in a place beyond space and time and decides to stay’, the team chose eight sculptures that are part of the V&A’s permanent collection and 3D-scanned them. Then they digitally rendered them in the abstract and merged them together to create new unfamiliar forms, as if something from a dream. The digital sculptures were then created using fabric, returning them to the analogue world.
