Laura Harty & Aideen Lowery

Workshop Description:

twenty four seven aims to explore the idea of building without designing. The workshop will produce an installation/sculpture/object over a 24 hour period, creating and adding one part for every hour. The final product will be a complete object with 24 constituent parts, representing a period of construction. It is an experiment to build using only the limitations of time and material. The end result will not be pre-planned or drawn.

Engaging 24 different people and taking place over 24 distinct hours the process is intended to facilitate an individual reaction. The challenge is to appropriate a part or parts, in whatever way you see fit, but responding only to the piece created in the previous hour.

The project will be made from rescued firewood, a natural, irregular material inspiring individual treatment. The adjacent parts should fit together snugly, but not be fixed by any mechanical or chemical means. The piece will be constructed like a tapestry, knit or planted surface.
Our 24 hours will be spread over Tuesday & Thursday nights (beginning July 7th & ending July 23rd) between 6pm & 10pm.
