18-04-2020 Face Nature Masterclass - Extending the body with leaves and branches

Face Nature: Masterclass is a critical making workshop led by Madeline Schwartzman, known from the book See Yourself Sensing. In this workshop participants craft their own speculative design prototypes and nature interfaces to build wearable prosthetics and face extensions. Face Nature involves participants in foraging, analyzing, and considering the senses, then engaging in the creation of an interstitial structure between the morphology of the face and the forms of nature. By crafting speculative wearables, participants will explore ways to re-connect with nature. In this two-day workshop you will craft your own nature interfaces, through speculative wearables and facial prosthetics. These will focus above all on the head, creating interstitial structures that connect the morphology of the face with the forms of nature.
