This book is dedicated to the work of Marcin Rusak, as part of a series of monographs on the thought and work of young contemporary designers. Beside testing new channels of preferential relationship between art and science as well as between artisanal and industrial manufacturing processes, the Polish designer is known for having contributed to the invention of formulas useful for accelerating or arresting the deterioration of organic floral matter; through the development of an absolutely original expressive language, Rusak’s projects lead to unexpected results and material experiments, where a vital proliferation turns into deadly corruption and vice versa.

Illustrated by a rich photographic series, the book presents the results of Rusak’s creative thought through some selected projects; written by Barbara Brondi & Marco Rainò, the volume recounts the experience of the Design Residency inspired by the theme “Encoded Symbols” Rusak was the protagonist of, which is part of the broader project IN Residence, a research program dedicated to design that has elaborated new reflections in the field of education and training, as well as in the support and promotion of creative talent, through an intense and recognized activity.

The book Marcin Rusak: Encoded Symbols is published along with another volume of the same series dedicated to the work of Roberto Sironi.
