2010's Time to Design Award was presented to Norweigan Siren Elise Wilhelmsen for her project Developing Time—Time Developing, a clock that knits 48 meshes per day, and produces one two meter long scarf per year.
The project was Wilhelmsen's graduation project at the University of Arts, Berlin. Time to Design, a fellowship at the Danish Arts Workshops designed to help young design talents at the beginning of their career, will give her time, space and resources to bring the project closer to the end user. For her, the next step is to find ways to personalize the production of the knit, perhaps programming the machine to respond to movement, sound, and light.
Time to Design is a partnership between the Danish Art Workshops, Normann Copenhagen, Link UP, and the Danish Association of Wood and Furniture Industries, sponsored by OeO, B14, and Kallow.
