The way we were is an assemblage of works made by undergraduate and graduate Industrial Design students of the academic year 2020/21, realized through a model, experiment or prototype. Its horror vacui composition aims to show the diversity of processes, materials and approaches of individual authors, at the same time moving away from the idea of single authorship towards a group assemblage, gathering of diversity.  Research through different media gives a special dynamic to the installation, the emphasis is not on flawless performance, but on transparency of the process, trial and error, the possibility of realization in given circumstances. The past year has brought many challenges, the epidemic and earthquakes revealed our weaknesses and shook the foundations of our values and systems. Online teaching was a big challenge, students have remained deprived of many skills that are being developed through studio work, workshops and hands on productivity. They managed by experimenting in their own living room, kitchen, bathroom or balcony, thus expanding the perception of possible methods of execution and use of available materials. Their coping with what was available, present and at hand in days of isolation, has created a new relationship to design, its inherent processes and production methods. Through these processes, students were exposed to questioning their own role in design education, developing resilience to meet the current challenges of society, the economy and their own role within the profession. In addition to the list of all students who studied in the past academic year, the installation can also be seen as a kind of giant legend.

The works range from unfinished experiments, templates, molds, mock ups, sketches and textual concepts, to prototypes, and yet they all coexist, unobtrusively illustrating The way we were.
