Matter Design challenges the default behaviors of contemporary society through its interdisciplinary creative practice. They leverage knowledge from prehistory to chart new possibilities for the future. The show on exhibit at Wasserman Projects features works by partners Brandon Clifford and Jo Lobdell. Clifford is an associate professor of architecture at MIT. He received a MArch from Princeton University and a BS in architecture from Georgia Tech. Clifford has received recognition with awards such as the American Academy in Rome Prize, a TED Fellowship, the SOM Prize, the Design Biennial Boston Award, and the Architectural League Prize for Young Architects & Designers. Best known for moving massive stones, Clifford’s speculative works continue to disrupt common practices and challenge default solutions. Lobdell finds forms for topics that go unseen. She creates objects that speak to our fears, curiosities, and possibilities; engaging with craft as a tool to span time. Lobdell received an MFA in sculpture from Cranbrook Academy of Art, a BFA from Lesley University, and an AAS in graphic design from Parsons School of Design. Her work at Matter Design has been exhibited at MoMA PS1 and has won several awards for its socially charged projects.
