Out of the box

3-day seminar with Ioanna Natsikou

January, 30 – February, 1 2015

Duration: 15 hours

What can come out of a creative process that is beyond the ordinary by using simple materials and tools? Will there be a change in the form, the shape and the quality of the object? To what extent can you intervene in a cheap material? How could you transform it in a way it loses its original image?

An unfamiliar material, a distinct process, a different rhythm-motion can lead every time to something new.

In this seminar, we will come face to face with this challenge by working with several materials that might have never occurred to us as options. There will be a lot of experimentation, while imagination will be the necessary element. The result will serve as the starting point for a new approach on the discovery of materials and the opportunities they might offer.

The point is to set our mind free from any conventions and make the most out of our spontaneity in order to be able to perceive “out of the box” all the new creative prospects that will be opening up.

Each participant should bring along some cheap material in abundance.

Ένα πειραματικό σεμινάριο γεμάτο ανακαλύψεις και αλχημείες υλικών. Τα υλικά μας, γνωστά και καθημερινά. Μέσα απο το παιχνίδι και τον πειραματισμό προσπαθήσαμε να ανακαλύψουμε τι ποιότητες μπορεί να μας δώσει το κάθε υλικό. Ο στόχος ήταν να το μεταμορφώσουμε, να χάσει την αρχική του εικόνα, να σκεφτούμε έξω απο το ” κουτί ” μας και να δημιουργήσουμε ένα κέλυφος όπου αυτό θα κρύβει το κάθε ίχνος της διαδικασίας μας. Ευχαριστούμε την Ιωάννα Νατσίκου που μοιράστηκε μαζί μας τις γνώσεις της αλλά και όλους όσους συμμετείχαν σε κάτι τόσο τολμηρό και είχαν το θάρρος να ” σκεφτούν έξω απο το κουτί τους” !!!!!
