VISCOSITECTURE Workshop with Jason&Becky
Sat 29 October 2016, 10:00 – 16:00 BST
Join artists Jason&Becky as you explore the notion of VISCOSITECTURE. This day will allow you to work alongside their current exhibition at Mission Gallery, considering themes of architecture and how we utilize our urban spaces - creating artwork that raises questions through collaboration, while challenging our own perceptions of public space.
Viscositecture is the physical representation of a period of research into the effects of architecture on our viscose existence in the spaces it creates. The translation of physical, psychological and emotional maps into new forms of connected spaces that develop over time, altering the viewer’s experiential relationship between them whilst offering a space for the contemplation of the complexity of the effects of architectural space on our daily existence.
This workshop is influenced by Jason&Becky's current exhibition 'VISCOSITECTURE' at Mission Gallery:
10 September - 19 November 2016
Our lives in the city are in many ways defined by the spaces created within it. Open, confined, oppressive, tranquil, imposing or liberating. As air flows through the spaces constructed in the city, so society drifts through concrete tributaries cut in deep structural valleys and swirls in the openness of public space. Our lives, routines and daily cognition connecting through the city as a viscose entity. Paths, structures, emotions and desires touched and shaped by the disruption of flow and rhythm focused by architectural space.
