The Power Plant will partner with Akin Projects to present a workshop inspired by Amalia Pica’s exhibition ears to speak of, in which Pica has reconstructed two acoustic radar units to-scale using cardboard. The workshop springboards from Pica's use of cardboard to explore the value of experimentation and failure in art and design. Beginning with a brief discussion-based tour of the exhibition, participants will then retreat to a studio space where artist and workshop leader, Atanas Bozdarov, will guide participants in using cardboard to design and construct failed technologies of the past or imagined wondrous technologies of the future. Further to this, some of the artworks created will function as site specific interventions around Harbourfront Centre.

Note: This workshop is open to Power Plant Artist Members and Akin Collective only.
