Meta.Morf 2022 / ReMida Trondheim / Workshop for children April 25 – May 8, 2022.
Workshop exhibition May 7 & 8, 13.00 – 15.00 / Curator: Pål Bøyesen
An important aspect of children playing and learning to understand the world is to place us and all living beings in relation to each other and the surroundings. What kind of materials children have access to in everyday life then becomes important for this play to unfold.
ReMida invites children into a room with a variety of natural materials: sticks, stones, clay, shells, seeds, etc. as a starting point for constructing worlds with new connections and ideas about what nature is and can be for us on Earth.
Snow cannons already exist, we want to manipulate the clouds; how can we pollinate all the flowers while discussing how to grow food on Mars? Maybe can the children create new machines that help nature put us on a new track as well?
There will be opportunities to draw along the way, and as a contrast to nature, we want the children to construct machines that we build together and set in motion within the new natural environment. Here, artist Øystein Kjørstad Fjeldbo will assist with his expertise in the use of sensors, mechanics and sound.
