People in Process: The Adhocist Chair

As part of Adam Blencowe‘s time with Scene, he expanded on his original project ‘The Adhocist Chair‘ with a workshop open to the public.

The perimeters were:

  • To work to a given brief (written by visitors to the gallery)
  • To use the materials on hand (found and scrap material)
  • To answer the brief within 4 hours (!)

Twelve participants stepped up to the challenge, and with briefs as varied as ‘a travelling chair’ and ‘a chair to keep me awake on my night shift’, in record speed a whole assembly of new chairs were created! The chairs are being exhibited as part of the ongoing exhibition alongside Adam’s original work, and will be part of the May ‘Process‘ show at Dreamspace.
