Where the Sky Widens: Workshop
March 31st 2015, 10:00 am - 5:30 pmFree
We all carry around with us connections to places – some that tug on our heartstrings stronger than others. Imagine a small, fragile pod that you also carry around with you as you walk. The pod will let you know you are moving towards a place that means something important to you.
Enthusiastic, curious people are invited to participate in a group workshop led by Nikki Pugh as part of a research project that investigates the use of sculptural, location-aware objects as a tool for thinking and talking about distant places.
During the workshop you will assemble a paper pod that will then have electronics added to it so that it responds to a place that you choose. As we craft these pods we will talk around the subject of ‘distant places that we have a strong emotional connection to’.
