Leaf House Redux @Signal, 2014
Signal is an art space for teenagers on the banks of the Yarra, Melbourne,
they create programs here that go beyond the art education that these kids would
experience as part of a high school curriculum e.g.robotics, writing code, 3d printing, graffiti etc.
We recreated the work commissioned for M Pavillion incorporating the workshop attendees as equal collaborators. We discussed ideas with them such as the idea of working as a collective and successful ways in which collectives can operate, we also talked about how to design a space from the point of view of an audience member, basic structural concepts and how to improvise with materials. The best workshops are when the students take over and need no direction, this was one of those.
