Description
Summary:How can temporary place-making practice reveal a nomadological condition at work within a contemporary spatial landscape? How can this temporary place-making practice create a space of mindfulness within the low-affect condition of the non-places that spatialise our contemporary condition of super-modernity as proposed by Marc Auge? This practice based research project is articulated through a series of nomadic objects that communicate transitional movement throughout our contemporary spatial landscape. The project uses material exploration and object making as a design methodology to construct temporal place in the non-place. Using this methodology, the research suggests a creative practice that expresses the concept of mindfulness through a heightened sense of touch. The creative methodology evolves nomadically through a process of Thinking Through Making making. This methodology is one of mobility, fluidity and reiteration. The project occupies the non-place, a place of low affect and transitional movement, and highlights it within a phenomenological inquiry; it looks at the current experience of non-place and how it is interpreted and how to change this current perception. The creation and implementation of the Nomadic Objects has caused a break in the non-place. This development of modular, crafted and touch based artifacts has generated a nomadological process to contrast the previous perception of non-place and instead, generate mindfulness.
