WAYS OF SEEING BY NICOLA ANTHONY
25 February 2017
10.30am to 1pm
Intersections gallery, 34 Kandahar Street, (S)198892
Borrowing from the artist’s way of looking, this workshop seeks to engage the public in a new way. During journeys taken to create the artworks in the Intersection body of work, Nicola found herself looking, observing and perceiving the world as a ‘sensory sponge’.During this workshop she will talk about her tools of looking in new ways; seeing details, sounds, smells, and moments in a more observant and mindful manner, and thinking about our own personal interpretation of this when the world ‘intersects’ with our personal microcosm - our perception.
Outline: After a brief introduction, participants begin walking and observing around the Kampung Gelam area, taking observational notes and sketches whilst they attempt to be a ‘sensory sponge’. They will then regroup to discuss and create artwork from this source material. The workshop could be aimed at children or adults, will be great for creatives and non-creatives alike, providing new tools and ways of looking and experiencing the world.
