Polimeralia 4th Edition 28 July to 1 August 2017
Lines drawn in the sand by Ana Belchí
Who has not been hypnotized by looking at the lines drawn in the sand? The continuous movement of the sea, the capricious drawings, the random forms that make our imagination fly.
Who has not spent an afternoon sitting on the sand leaving their footprint on the seashore?
This summer in Polimeralia we are going to sit near the sea and draw lines in the clay. With a new method we will be able to design as many reasons as we want.
We will create a tubular piece and play with various assemblies and compositions.
Oneiric windows by Noelia Contreras Martín
As it happens in the oneiric world, we will make distorsion of concepts and shapes become real, tangible. We will learn to build double-frame light pieces with inner layers as if they were distorted windows to our dreams. But we will not only focus on building structures, we will work also on fine endings and on when to use smooth or textured surfaces.
All those technics and tips will let you build many kind of pieces you could imagine. The final assembly could be done from only two pieces, so we will be able to make our creation grow to exploit all the time of the class.
