We have talked about basurama before. I, Ben, as well as being part of Ecosistema Urbano for nearly a year now, I spend, since 2001, much of my time and energy in organising basurama. In this occasion, we want to talk about the next workshop we are organising: Diseño de sobra 07.
A workshop for the design and creation of objects in real time. An initiative for researching the possibilities of working with industrial waste in the creation process. A collaboration with El Ultimo Grito (a design firm currently based in Berlin, run by Rosario Hurtado and Roberto Feo, lecturers of Goldsmith University and Royal College of Art in London). A collective experience in a unique setting in Madrid (Palacio de la Prensa, Callao). In continuance of Diseño de Sobra 06.
The workshop will be 3 days long (8-10 january), we will work morning and afternoon to develop together the ideas, design and production of movable devices capable of radically transforming urban conditions of those places where they are temporarily installed. No-identifiable bodies for interacting freely in an urban context.
If you are interested, send an email with your details (full name and telephone number) to inscripciones at basurama.org telling us why you can to take part in DdeS07, together with a representative image of your work. The workshop is free. There are 10 places available. Application deadline: 31st december. The list of selected candidates will be published on the 2nd january.
