Working with Maria Teresa we will get playful with ideas from science –using bubbles, string and holes we will create a large installation of drawings in our studio space. We will develop an artwork that helps us think other universes that we can, as yet, only imagine.

Thursday 19 February 10.30am – 12.30pm Workshop 3: Brains, (Mem)Branes and Many Worlds
Working with Maria Teresa we will imagine new life forms, new words and languages that might travel through the multiverse. We will draw our ideas and turn them into stories and text art, using ink and string.
