What is an alternative way of self-expressing? Klap Klap Klap is a social laboratory to experiment with individual stories and unique ways of expression. The collection of conceptual devices in the laboratory enable people to paint without body restrictions and open up conversations between people. Klap Klap Klap contains a mobile portable museum as well. This design empowers the Living Museum to go outside and share their positive story with the world in an expressive, stimulating and tangible manner.For Klap Klap Klap, the designers and artists have let their imagination run wild between design and social needs to contribute to de-stigmatization, creation and facilitating connections.
Visitors of the DDW 2018 can experience the painting tools themselves; they can make art, while listening to intimate audio support.
Both the artists and design collective will be present to explain their personal impression of the special process and meaning of Klap Klap Klap.
