Why Doesn't Gucci Make Zimmer Frames

Visual artist Jo Hodges is into the second week of her residency here at Thomas Tosh. Jo is in our upstairs gallery looking at the thorny issue of how designers, in particular, and society, as a whole, deals with ageing.

Jo's been getting objects that are stereotypically associated with old age and thinking about how top design houses might approach them. And Jo's been talking to TT customers about their thoughts on all the issues involved.

It's been really lively, and Jo is with us until this Friday so it's worth giving her a visit here at TT. This week Jo is working on more concepts and hopefully getting people involved in making finished objects or pieces of work for display.
