Second Land: a ground veiling installation

August 4th – August 10th 2019

The Workshop

Could we imagine creating a new surface for the earth? For this workshop we are going to use simple natural materials of saplings, reeds drawn from the riverside lands and agricultural fields of the Domaine and weave them together with massed arrays of liquid-carrying vessels. We will work together to construct an interwoven hybrid membrane that covers the land and creates shelters, hoping to discover renewed qualities of fertility. Pattern-books and open geometries from the Living Architecture Systems Group and Beesley’s Hylozoic Series will be offered, inviting common form-languages to emerge. Your work will alternate between explorations using Boisbuchet's fabrication workshops and collective work gathering materials, fabricating, and building together within the landscape.
