Movement Workshop, Nottingham Contemporary

In this workshop it was important to me for the participants to be able to make connections between movement/ dynamism and the possibilities of sculpture. I wanted to create an installation that provided a literal trace of movements made by the participants. Those involved followed a process of physical experimentation, using large sticks with fabrics that allowed you to make shapes in the air – followed by documentation through drawing. The final step of the session was to create a three dimensional piece that could be manipulated to form the shape of some of the movements experimented with. The individual sculpture (to be included in the installation) importantly was made of the same material as the fabric/stick used for experimentation. The scope for improvisation – and play with the material in this manner meant that participants could be informed by the properties of the material and bodily interaction before making the installation.
