”These forms of uniqueness generally orientate around the story behind the creation
of such an object or the story of its use. In either case the object develops a sense of
aura and evokes a higher value to the user. Heirlooms, art works, one-off
handcrafted goods, childhood treasures, daily use tools etc are examples of such
Attachments to Object, Emotionally Durable Design:
Objects, Experiences and Empathy (2015)
For inspiration you will choose an irreplaceable object that has a unique memory attached to it.
In this workshop students will be encouraged to experiment with collage and mark-making to process paper to create a study book of the patina of wear and tear, “the glow of grime,” which “comes of being touched over and over” — a record of the tactile love an object has acquired through being caressed by human hands again and again”
Using the simple four-page accordion-fold sketchbook is a convenient entry point for students to learn the skill of making a series of related images which can enhance the flow of any future sketchbooks.
