Brandon LaBelle workshop
Presentation of his work + Workshop about Spatial Practices
Workshop about Spatial Practices
Focusing on the performative aspect of the built, the workshop will introduce ideas and methods for working relationally with the built environment:
- What is my relation to this place?
- Where are the boundaries between inside and outside?
- Who is that person over there?
Working in and around an immediate location, the workshop will explore approaches toward working on site through the use of material objects. From this perspective, space is appreciated as a process-in-action based on notions of interaction, generosity and disruption. These ideas will be explored through a one-day seminar and workshop, which aims to explore spatial relations and acts of spatial practice. Following an initial presentation and discussion on spatial practice (experimental architecture, performativity, field work), students will undertake an exercise involving a wooden stick-object to be used in the making of a spatial dialogue: how might this rather
neutral and ordinary object be manipulated and located to stimulate a spatial conversation with its surroundings? Focusing on an immediate site, the exercise aims to stimulate the spatial imagination by exploring ways to materially supplement and engage with a familiar location. By composing a temporary intervention in relation to a specific location, the exercise puts to use the material object to query how one might participate in spatial relations.
