The seminar aims to examine the role of the contemporary maker in relation to materials, conceptual processes and sustainability. Where do our materials come from and where do they end up? What are the ethical responsibilities of working with materials that are/were alive and what does it take to create symbiotic relationships with other than human entities? Can an increased focus on sustainability force our artistic practices to take new unexpected, experimental leaps? How can craft practices be used to reflect upon contemporary material culture and what impact will it have on the future?
