Presentation Title:

  • Making Space: Objects of Interdependence

Presenter(s):



Abstract:

  • Through the reconstruction of familiar, domestic objects, Michael Borowski creates situationist devices combining function and fantasy. The proposed uses of these objects transform personal and private actions into communal activities. His recent work has explored the physical and psychological geography of “home” and the effects of increasing migration and mobility. Borowski’s portable devices provide some of the physical comforts of home and offer space to interact with others in a public setting, encouraging participants to share intimate, domestic rituals with strangers.
