Visitors will be asked a simple question and write the answer on a ribbon, then weave their answer into a structure.
This year for the first time Origin will feature an opportunity for visitors to participate in creating an craft.
A structure designed by Alinah Azadeh will be made over the two-week span, using a simple frame and approximately 10,000 metres of ribbon with the written answers of participants to form its skin.
It will be an evolving crafted space, containing in its walls the thoughts and dialogue inspired by objects made, bought and sold at Origin. A place of refuge and creativity, the project offers an insight into the process of making both an object and the space within it. We will be putting the public at the centre of the work and their written experience of Origin in its very fabric, providing a critical context for the event.
