definition: kinship – a close connection marked by community of interests or similarity in nature or character
– a sharing of characteristics or origins – relationships between family members – a feeling of being close or similar…
With our fantastic team of designers and makers, we will collaboratively dream-up, draw-up, build, install and test-out a remarkable nest of 4 outdoor benches to be enjoyed as kinship by all. As for every Kinship; we aim for beauty, comfort, conviviality and for Kinship IV we will need steadfast durability!
The Railway land. This will not only be the home of our design endeavours but the prototyping, sharing, testing and production area itself.
Participants gather on site 25th September. There we will first discover the components of our workshop, space to construct and pitch together.
Once we have a shelter in place, and materials gathered, we will begin to dream and scheme in teams through the game of ‘consequences’ or ‘exquisite corps’*1. This will give our work a special twist and some surprise ingredients! And best of all, passers-by will this year be invited to join in and join up our benches!
1* Exquisite corpse, also known as exquisite cadaver is a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled. … The technique was invented by surrealists and is similar to an old parlour game …Consequences is an old parlour game in a similar vein to the Surrealist game exquisite corpse and Mad Libs. Each person takes a turn writing a word or phrase forming part of a set structure in order to build a story.
