Eyal Burstein at the interface between art and design
Eyal Burstein manages to twist the definitions of art and design in creating a curious concoction of powerful projects. Whether it is how he artistically reinvents scaffolding as a structure upon which to exercise a whim, or disassembles a perfectly functional, freshly designed bench in order for its components to be defined as pieces of art, he is alert to react to the ordinary madness of life. DAMN° talks to him about just how he does this.
