Come join the second edition of our Penny for your Thoughts Presentations, where makers, designers and artists present new ideas and future project plans.
FoRests of Remembrance
Forests of Remembrance spotlights the links between nature and the dead body. Rituals surrounding death serve to reconnect the body with nature, giving it back to where it belongs. Angela Kerr suggests that we can transform these rituals and make it into a “preserving” ceremony, instead of a traditional “giving back”.
Human Hair Tapestry
Hair is a human fiber that can represent beauty, health and identity, yet when detached from the body most people find it disturbing. Emily Bates, in her project of Human Hair Tapestry, questions how can we turn these remnants into a ritualistic artwork.
Growing with Garments
You wouldn’t want your Monstera to die, nor anything you grow. If your clothes depended on you to live, maybe your mindset on fast-fashion would change. How do we deepen our relationship with clothes by changing their value? Yi-Jing Chen, in her project Growing with Garments, creates apparel that needs active care to exist.

Penny For Your Thoughts
There is something uniquely inspiring when looking into artistic processes that are still in progress: unpolished, experimental and open-ended. Penny for your Thoughts is our project nursery, where we stimulate project proposals by offering them a stage.
