Intro
»Designers in Residence« is an international scholarship program for young designers in the areas of jewellery, fashion, accessory and industrial design. Since 2016 the city of Pforzheim invites in cooperation with Pforzheim University and the Design Center Baden-Württemberg three designers for a three-months working phase to EMMA Creative Centre in Pforzheim. This year, the scholarship holders are presenting their works in a virtual exhibition at »Stattbad«, a former swimming pool that is now a space for virtual projects.

Designers in Residence- scholarship holders:
Maria Appleton
, Textile design, Portugal. Project: Not a city that was.
Maria Appleton's work explores the relationship between bodies and spaces/places, using textiles as a medium that allows different perspectives upon an architectural system. In Pforzheim, Maria Appleton created a work in the former public swimming pool hall, one of the few remaining historical buildings in this city. Because this place is not physically accessible and can only be visited virtually, her work deals with concepts of presence, healing properties and mindscapes, being in direct relationship with the »Bad« culture in Baden-Württemberg, Germany.

Mira Kim, Jewellery design, South Korea. Project: In Flux.
In her work, Mira Kim uses the information to create impressions and new perspectives, which allows the viewer to reprocess this information. In Pforzheim, Mira Kim created objects and jewellery that refer to space where they are exhibited: She conducted research and interviews about the former swimming pool, and implemented this information in her work, taking also into account the virtual experience of her work.

Jaspar Rogers, Industrial design, United Kingdom. Project: Political playground.
To Jaspar Rogers politics is the process of interpreting information to devise a strategy, make decisions and to solve entangled problems. But how do we navigate floods of information in an age of simplification, misinformation, algorithmic validation, and divisive language, and can it be taught? Through workshopping political strategies in schools, Jaspar Rogers identified thinking structures that help children to understand political processes. His »political playground« is the physical manifestation of these thinking structures.
