‘A House Is Not a Home’ T-Shirt Collage Workshop
The ‘A House Is Not a Home’ collage workshop was a one night event in which attendees could purchase tee shirts and select graphics from a pre-designed pallet of options and then cut, layer, and layout their own 1 of 1 design on their shirt. The designs would then be heat pressed onto the shirts in real time. The designs included text based graphics as well as artworks with content based on elements of the home such as windows, doors, exteriors, etc. With these designs as a basis, attendees could ‘design’ their own version of the home via their graphics choice. The installation consisted of a temporary spatial configuration formed by stud walls that doubled as a ‘cash-wrap’ and work space, as well as pieces of recycled building materials such as doors and cabinets. The recycled materials then create their own version of the ‘building collage’ in the form of a 12’ monolithic wall composed of doors and cabinets.
