Target audience: all ages
ArchiLoom is a large 3-dimensional installation utilising re-purposed materials including bamboo, recycled rope, fabrics and other found materials.
Based at the Arts Learning Festival village at Birrarung Marr, this interactive construction by the Slow Art Collective builds participation through engagement with school groups and members of the community.
After Slow Art Collective have constructed the giant loom the participants and collaborators fill in the walls of the structure by using the ancient craft of weaving to incorporate the chosen materials into the loom.
The project focuses on the value of collaboration and explores concepts of value and sustainable practices. By using a simple technique, the installation invites anyone regardless their skill level or experience to become a co-creator of the artwork.
ArchiLoom is a colourful and playful work that is able to respond accordingly to the various sites and needs of the various contexts that it inhabits
The installation will offer a space that invites areas of play, rest, craft and discovery, and will be at the festival village all week. Bookings are not necessary so drop by to be part of a collaborative project.
