I traveled to Boisbuchet in France to be part of the media team to document in video format some of the workshops, a part of this, I participate in the workshop ‘Learning from the wrong places’ driven by the artist and interior design, Jorge Panades.
The result was an objects and photographs collection based on the transparency concept and resulted from experimenting with a magnifying glass and a lens.
In this workshop, we studied the agricultural surroundings of the Domaine the Boisbuchet to create a catalog of references from which new objects, furniture, sculptures, or installations could arise. Participants were guided through an experimental learning process from non-design-educated entities. An erratic connection, an improvised structure, or an accidental space could be the starting point for a project that will generate creative emancipation from our standardized contemporary culture.
Boisbuchet was the dream of a design amateur and expert: Alexander von Vegesack. He wanted a place where design meets education in a meaningful sense. Some 25 years ago, he bought the 150 hectares Domaine de Boisbuchet. Since then, professionals and students have come every year to experience how internationally successful professionals structure their work and how they approach design problems.
