OBJECT AND CONTEXT: Fritz Karch on "A Maximalist Practice"
Parsons The New School for Design will present the seventh edition of AFTERTASTE, its annual interior design symposium organized by its MFA Interior Design program. Taking place February 22 and 23, 2013, AFTERTASTE will explore the "Atmosphere of Objects," a close examination of the way objects in space inform inhabitation, influence perception and create social dynamics.
"Objects that occupy space are both props for the designer's vision, and projections of the inhabitant's psyche," said Jonsara Ruth, director of the MFA Interior Design program at Parsons. "Objects and furniture choreograph human performance, provide function, influence atmosphere, and inspire nostalgia."

Fritz Karch became an active collector at age eleven and has always been an ardent believer in the benefits and pleasures of hunting and gathering. He formally studied art at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Since graduating, he has worked for the last three decades in New York City in the design, publishing, retail, and commercial photography communities as a stylist, editor, and creative director. He helped create and launch the Collecting Department at Martha Stewart Living Magazine -- hunting, gathering and collecting as the Editorial Director of Collecting for fifteen years. Simultaneously, Fritz has been running an antiques business for the last twenty five years in Hopewell, New Jersey, where he studies and practices the art and craft of editing, gathering, styling, trading, and selling antiques and an endless assortment of elderly and recycled objects of a functional use. Fritz is always eager for any opportunity to collect, style, and edit anything anywhere.
