Thinking through making


By focusing on the act of making we obtain a more materialistic engagement and a fuller understanding of the process by which people produce things. In the same way Richard Sennet points out in his book the craftsman that ‘we can achieve a more humane material life, if only we better understand the making of things.’ Making and consequentially thinking through making thus plays a central role in our practice. During our workshops we work collaboratively to produce a set of life size cladding tiles. Each cast can be read as a hands-on experiment in texture and an investigation on the symbolic and representational potential of the surface.
