In Session #3, the task was to translate the site visits and experiments into concepts of temporary objects/structures — inspired by the material’s place of origin. This session was supported by an ideation workshop, which gave insights into methods of collaborative storytelling. In the end, temporary objects were created in dialogue with the environment, its stories and people; objects that slowly return to their place of origin.
Generally, this design exercise raises questions about our use of ground (as a resource, as a place of return, as a dump, as a living system, as our environment,…). It likewise questions the design of the durable, of objects that far outlive their period of use.
