Is catacorner.

The bringing together of two objects made at different times with different objectives to make one object revealing new possibilities, not only in terms of the actual form but more importantly the development of seeing and thinking through making. Formalizing of haphazardness.

BY MAKING...More than just a place to sit

What a wonderful year it was, just before settling into the holiday season spending time with family and friends my exhibition titled 'BY MAKING...More than just a place to sit' was held at Granderson Lab -a project by Alice Yard.

The show featured three projects I have developed over the last 2-3 years, Peera, Dishout and most recently Outin.

Outin- Moment for pleasure
Spurs- Table system designed for presenting Dishout
Peera-Wooden and aluminium benches
Adam Cooper and Rachael Anne Thomas
Abigail Hadeed and Marlon Darbeau

Peera... more than a place to sit

Peera is a reinterpretation of the familiar.

You can sit on it, carry things in it... maybe tools,
drinks or whatever you desire.

This project further investigates the idea of convergence, the utilization of different modes of making.

It is a culmination of many moments where a Designer engages with an Architect to design and build...not a building but the architecture of a small object. Collaborating with Sean Leonard over the last year has brought up questions of multiplicity...the nature of Alice Yard forces one to consider improvisation and demands a thing to have many purposes (a series of simple metal chairs is used for seating
today, tomorrow they are shelves for displaying items).

Ideas about rethinking and remaking the familiar, challenging the way we see ourselves and the things we have grown up with. Christopher Cozier has appropriated the peera bench in a series
he titles "little gestures", while he sees it for its symbolic value, this object for me is a design investigation.

Christopher Cozier, Draconian Switch, Town, Alice Yard is part of the Global Africa Project currently on show at the Museum of Arts and Design NY.
