The Undoing of an Object (part of Doing Together 2023)
The Undoing of an Object
Workshop with Abigail Hunt as part of doing together 2023
Monday 3 April 2023
doing together is a yearly two-day making and sharing practice symposium at Locksbrook Campus, hosted by Bath Spa University’s Centre of Cultural and Creative Industries and Art Research Centre. Workshops, delivered by staff and PGR students from across the University, share practice-based research methods and a broad range of approaches to practice. doing together is proposed as a generous space to make/do/share and discuss practice with colleagues from a range of different Schools. Throughout the symposium, facilitators - alongside participants - test out ways of doing together in an effort to make their practice-based research explicit, rather than simply describe it.
This short practical workshop attempted to interrogate the complexities of “thinking through making” by literally taking objects apart. Deconstructing an object visually, materially and conceptually, we interrogated the processes within it: making, looking, thinking, gathering and auditing together.
