WILDLIFE GYMGROW, COOK, EAT, MEET.
In 2013 we took over the workshop space one day in April at Somerset house art and graphic fair ‘PICK ME UP!’ We took the opportunity to open up conversation topic of waste and created a game around it to get others to think about materials, function, form and really think about what aspects of the process they want to get involved in.
For the offcuts we spoke with and arranged waste pick ups from london based design and making studios, collecting scraps and unused things from the likes of Michael Marriot, Front Yard Company, and set designer Liz Young, among others.
Armed with buckets of waste we set a simple brief to try and maximise the creativity to come from the participants. To begin the game and set the cycle going a drawn piece was borrowed from one of the artists on display at Pick Me Up! following on from there groups and individuals began interpreting the 'play' that had come before them until the whisper had absolutely no recollection of what had come before.
Adding to intention we had set out we created a 'set' for the game to be played made from recycled carpet tubes. The plinths became the stages on which each creation came to rest and pulled together all aspects of creation to presentation in a small space and short time.
