“We are all part of the world, all is animate. The non-human world bears witness to all our actions.” Karen Spy
Blueprints for an New Ecology
Blueprints for a New Ecology takes inspiration from Eduardo Paolozzi’s lithograph and screenprint edition Blueprints for a New Museum. It includes a site visit to Paolozzi’s Studio Reconstruction at the National Galleries of Scotland and selected Paolozzi sculptures in the city. Having gathered images on day one, the next two days bring these images to life. Using collage and simple print processes, participants will be guided through a series of creative exercises to imagine their own blueprints for a new ecology, where social, environmental and economic relations meet. Outcomes will be in the form of a bound concertina book (with the option for display in an exhibition context).
Led by Jonathan Baxter and Sarah Gittins
