Field Essays - LucyandBart
The design process unveiled

Onomatopee & Sophie Krier present Field Essays, a new series of journals about the dynamics of design processes. Field Essays maps the work and the motives of innovative design practices and engages them with the ideas of contemporary thinkers. Field Essays works in a practical manner, by acting as a critical and reflective backdrop to the production of new work.

The first issue is devoted to the work of Pick of Sticks, the ad hoc duo of Bart Hess and Lucy McRae. Lucyandbart work close to the body, and their mode of operation is impulsive; they generate ambiguous images depicting our skin as a an interface between our self and the world. Guestwriter Marek Pokropski (Pl) contributes a philosophical essay, which revolves around our embodied perception of the world.
