The workshop will look to explore the potential residing within Found Objects and how they can be used to stimulate the scenographic process. Specifically relating to scale model-making, the participants will explore a variety of approaches within the duration of the workshop.
Central to the activities and to the workshop space, is a table full of found objects and ephemera. These initially appear to be disparate artefacts with no connection and, to many observers, simply a collection of discarded materials and worthless junk. However, we will explore the possibility that these objects can be used to develop a Scenographer’s instincts and circumvent a more linear approach to stage design.
