The Journal of the Studio written by the people who visited us during RDW2015
LUMINUU. Hand in hand paper. True story.
LUMINISH is conceived through body, paper and light. The letter is hermeneutics stemmed from mould and print, the book is monadic, the body of illumination ritually lights up at dusk. The manual paper generates, facilitates and translates their encounter.
LUMINISH proposes an experiment with manual recycled paper of hands. Every person who visits us may be a part of this experimental play by letting us mould his right hand with manual paper.Time of making: 15mins. After six days of moulding workshops , in the 7th, we will create LUMINU: all the moulds will put together into a colaj installation.
As long as you make it you may break it out and re-make it. The hand shapes: writes, draws, paints, carves, makes paper. The hand comforts and nurshises. The hand experiences. It brings the stream of consciousness into materialization. So as long as the hand works, the mind meditates, the heart creates.The making, serenity and creation go hand in hand.
The paper covers the hand. The potency of the creation is apprehended by the mould. The mould is anchored into an alfa and omega key object, breaking out and re-making. Vegetal epidermis is moulded onto the human one. Original play: the nature germinates, potentiates and creates. Second play: the man uses, recycles and re-creates.
Thank you, Romanian Design Week 2015!
Experiences into the substance and the fantasia of the Book Studio, into the light and the shadow of Luminish. Well-ordered by finding, making and comprehension. Gathered here, from the beginning till the end of the Romanian Design Week, 15th – 24th of May 2015.
We desired interplay, we got the dialogue.
We desired a colaj installation frozen in contemplation, we got the weaver well anchored in creation.
We proposed the moulding, we got hands.
We proposed the script, we got description.
Thanks to your footstep which guided you in, thanks to your hands which patiently lay into the paper, thanks to your glittering eyes, thanks to those smiles which did not show up, but were here. Thank you and you and you! Come onward and come back! Among hours, among words, amidst us!
