Etched in Time

Symposium in conjunction with the exhibition Etched in Time – Between the whole and the perfect, the coincidental and the deliberate

Monday 22/6/15 at 15:00

The symposium will focus on the coincidental in the making process and the potential of creating something new from something broken, cracked or defective as well as the meaning of time expressed in the object. We will discuss the choice made by makers to use old or new materials, materials that deteriorate in time or are resilient, the values inherent in these objects and the dialogue between chance and control in the making process.
