Rhythm Without End
Date and time12.1 – 24.10.2021
Rhythm Without End is an installation made by Caitlin Yardley.
The work considers the movement and influence of design objects, using ideas of circulation, rhythm and repetition to explore how they might simultaneously inhabit our world and be a lens from which to view it.
Drawing on the object collection and image archives of the Design Museum, Yardley focuses on encounters with cylindrical, spherical or round forms and evidence of spinning movement.
Rhythm Without End establishes that circulation, as a formal and figurative concept, is an embedded condition of design, evident across various disciplines.
The installation follows this logic through a deep focus on a single design – Aino Aalto’s Bölgeblick glass dinner plate from 1932.
