Event description

Description

Drop-in sessions, Wednesday 20th September (16:30 - 19:30) and Thursday 21st September (12:00 - 16:00)
No ticket required, just drop-in.

Join artist Emilie Giles and add your personal reflections about Elephant and Castle to an interactive textile sculpture. You will learn how to make a small sensor using conductive thread and felt. Your contribution will bring the artwork alive, triggering sounds from the local area when touched!

A textile sculpture will be created in the space that reflects the feelings and thoughts of local residents of the change happening in Elephant and Castle. Artist Emilie Giles will build the sculpture on day one, creating a draping structure which can be stepped into, or under, by the public.

Members of the public will be invited to record their thoughts and feelings about their area and community. These recordings will be added to the sculpture and can be triggered by other visitors. A mixture of oral history, embroidery and creative circuit making, the project hopes to embody the tone of change which is happening in the area.

As part of LCC's London Design Festival programme: Uncertainty Playground; FutureMakers embraces making as a form of inquiry in the context of an expanded design practice. Within the confines of an evolving co-created making space practitioners will explore how uncertainty is a manifest part of creative exploration and demonstrate the iterative relationship between idea, material and artefact. A series of workshops, demonstrations and events will bring together diverse practitioners using experimental processes and enabling a public engagement in the material practices of contemporary makers; reusing material, repurposing space, creating new tools and collaborating across disciplines.
