Messenger/Receiver House
by sabine7 / February 25, 2008

The Messenger/Receiver House is a project by Colm Keller, Chris Knox and Bastian Bischoff, 3 design students completing an MA. Design at HDK in Gothenburg, that was conceived to collect and analyse public opinion about homelessness. Students of graphics and product design joined forces to create an eye-catching public exhibit that draws attention to a very social issue. The bright colours drew people in and apparently some wanted the structures to use as dog houses! But once they absorb and process the messages on the houses, there is more time to reflect on the seriousness of the issue. Eventually the project will involve smaller versions to be decorated by homeless people and well known creatives to be auctioned off to raise funds for organizations that deal with homelessness.
