Most of the time, we see, understand, recognize, identify, or even describe everything through their visual expressions. These visual expressions allow us to depict an object, interpret it, or even use it unconsciously. So, let’s say we have always been involved with images and trying to imitate and get inspiration from them to create a new entity.
The seminar questions the role of image in the production of an object. The aim is to explore the visual existence of an object by understanding its essence, meaning, behavior, history, content, universal attributes, etc., to challenge our understanding of it.
In the workshop, each participant created an object carrying the qualities of an image. Through a series of exercises, students learned to represent the qualities of their chosen image and transform a pre-existing thing by employing the non-composition manner as a combinatorial approach. The new entity no longer looks like its origin and functions, behaves, and works differently.
