In the opening exhibition of Design 1978, we tried to apply the problem-solving process through design to a region called Gyeonggi-do. The questions and requests from Design 1978 to the 6 designers (team) participating in the exhibition are as follows.
What are the problems/issues facing Gyeonggi-do as of 2020, and try to imagine and experiment how these problems/issues can be solved through design.
To this end, we conducted preliminary research and topic discussions with designers in the second half of 2019, and were able to set six issues/issues related to Gyeonggi Province’s culture, environment, art, and region.
1. DMZ (North Gyeonggi-do)
2. Life, culture and history of Gyeonggi-do
3. Gyeonggi-do multiculturalism, foreign families
4. The future of Gyeonggi Province after the Fourth Industrial Revolution
5. Gyeonggi-do companion animal abandonment problem
6. Marine waste on the west coast of Gyeonggi-do

Each designer (team) used the research results to develop typography, ceramics, lighting, graphics/textiles, media, upcycle design, and production. <I have a story to tell you> externally shows a design work exhibition, but it is more of a design process exhibition that shares the process of problem recognition-research-development-production.
As of October 2020, the population of Gyeonggi-do is about 13,000,000 people, ranking first in the country and the largest area. The geographical, historical, and cultural characteristics of the east, west, south and north of Gyeonggi-do are also different, and design contents that can be developed accordingly are endless, but it was difficult to find a case of content production that fused Gyeonggi-do and design. Design 1978 intends to assess that the region can become the center of design content development through this opening exhibition. In addition, after the opening, we plan to share and spread the activities of designers who are active in the region as a “Gyeonggi-do Design Platform” and express various personalities and voices.
Due to the prolonged period of COVID-19 and distance from life, the exhibition is only available to people who have made a reservation online in advance. For more information on the opening exhibition, including online reservation, please visit the GyeongGi SangSang Campus website (www.sscampus.kr).
