A Place To Put All These Things – A spontaneously growing piece of cardboard architecture.
Last half term I visited the University of Hertfordshire to take part in a free workshop open to the public. Called ‘Participatory Interventions’, the event was organised and facilitated by artist Aaron Head. The idea was that you created structures with cardboard, glue & tape to form an ever evolving art installation. Whether you stayed 10 minutes or 4 hours (like I did), your creative cardboard sculpture was part of a growing piece of architecture. Aaron had also sourced & printed off many images that could be cut up and applied to your own sculpture to add a personal narrative. I couldn’t stay to the very end, but apparently the printed images were preloaded onto a DVD, then projected onto the cardboard art installation for all to see.
I thouroughly enjoyed my few hours of making, I got totally engrossed constructing my sculpture, hopefully the Uni will commission some more free art days in the near future.
