BALLARAT – SPRING
21st to 27th September 2020View Event
The emphasis of this workshop will be on placed on creative risk taking. Most often in the creative process to manifest the unexpected and to find ways to visually translate and generate new ideas it takes suspending the need to find quick solutions. How do we create work that embodies “healthy tensions?” Many times when experimenting with new materials language and linear thinking are not the most effective means to understand the lens from which we perceive.
My hope is that each student uncovers an unexpected fresh idea, way of working, or new material that they had not considered as part of their previous repertoire. In addition, the “nature” of the group will assist to determine the evolution of the week’s explorations.
Students will be required to keep a daily journal. Short readings may be assigned. Work outside of the workshop will be encouraged.
