Gareth Wynne Fitzpatrick
Gareth has been building a human-sized bird's nest at Mediamatic Fabriek. During the final building days he will suspend himself from the ceiling and finish his nest midair. Besides this spectacle he will also give a short presentation of his work.
The workshops started in the early afternoon. Visit this page for times. The rest of the program started at 16:00. Location: Mediamatic Fabriek, VOC-kade 10, Oostenburg Amsterdam. Entrance with a valid membership (€5,- for 4 weeks). Kids half price.
Freezing Favela was a temporary city at Mediamatic Fabriek. The Fabriek is situated in the Van Gendthallen on Oostenburg, Amsterdam. The space is big, unheated, and the roof leaks. Designers, cooks and other makers had claimed part of this space as their own. Favela citizens were making tosti's from scratch, paper from cow dung, furniture from cardboard, and food from our aquaponics farm. They gave workshops, organized get-togethers, and served food.
