06 AAD workshops
holeinmypocket were involved in several workshops organised for those participating in Advanced Architectural Design (AAD) at the University of Strathclyde Graduate School session 2002-03.
Each dealt with different subject matter with its interpretation open to those taking part. The first workshop took place on a beach on the east coast of Scotland and was entitled constructing territory. Participants were asked to engage with the phenomena of performance art, construction, spacial organisation and physical context during a 60 minute silent performance.
The Sculpture Workshop was held at the Scottish Sculpture Studio in the historic village of Lumsden, Aberdeenshire. The workshop which took place over the course of two days concluded wiht a public presentation of the work produced to the Studio directors and the people of Lumsden.
The final workshop, contamination, was based in exploring the social, political, economic and emotional assemblage which define modes of behaviour and occupation, and in discovering/uncovering the relationship between this lived dimension and the existing built environment. It invited its participants to create spatial dislocation or contaminations which intervene within existing power structure.
