Text of Drossfesto v.1.0 first publicly presented at OPEN PLAN micro-residency closing event is now available on DROSSWORDS page. Follow the link below to read it.
We/H&K were given the opportunity to realise Phase 1 of DROSSFESTO at OPEN PLAN: Micro-Residency, part of the Departure Foundation initiative*.
In a short space of time, the installation manifest itself through a series of floor and wall-based interventions, showing our research material to date, culminating in the visual outcome of our processes and the production of the first Drossfesto (read it here https://drossfesto.wordpress.com/drosswords/)
This outcome enabled for members of the public to engage with our discourse, while at the same time, allowing for critical interaction with the installation. Observing this interaction has created a necessary focused dialogue between H&K to take the project toward its next transformation.
