WORKSHOP - Into the Fold
From the course outline:
"We welcome you into the fold. We oscillate between body and space, material and interaction, the light and the dark, tension and release, inside and outside. We explore the medium of folds and the act of folding. We make and experience repetition, duplication, multiplicity and division. We investigate how folds can act as interfaces, as “coordinator between phenomena” (Paul Dourish, 2001), between people, architectural spaces, scales and states.
In this workshop, we will explore techniques of folding as practiced in textile design and architecture, and experiment with mechanics of activation. Folds link body space with architectural space. Participants will work in inter-disciplinary pairs or small groups, exploring together aspects of wearability, embodiment, spatial arrangement, scale and motion."
