Runs until 16 June 2007

Design is all around you, even in the most unlikely places. Adaptation, Peacock Visual Arts’ contribution the Six Cities Design Festival, looks into the impact of design in everyday life. The streets of Aberdeen will never look the same again!

We have invited a group of international artists including Adams (Copenhagen), Akay & Made (Stockholm), Brad Downey (New York), Brett Bloom and Bonnie Fortune (Chicago), Marjolijn Dijkman (Rotterdam) and Dominic Hislop (Berlin) to show and make work about and in reaction to design in daily life. The work ranges from subtle alternations of street furniture and other interventions in public space to creative uses of waste, documentation of earlier work in the gallery and video projects.
