How to express surface in 5 millimeters height – Workshop by Hitomi Yashimoto

March 2020

The workshop with Hitomi Yashimoto, concentrated on different ways in which simple/ mundane actions and materials can shift their meaning and appearance through attention.

The students were invited to explored their own expression through a limited plaster model of only five mm. The given limitation of size, allowed the students to explored their creative impulses with attention to the smallest details. Their attention was directed towards the character of the plaster and the different possibilities that its surface creates; opening up a world of possibilities.
Time was also posed as factor: the students asked to observe and learn the changing surface of the material: before, during and after processes of solidification.
