Porosity Studio details

n September 2005 we travelled to Beijing, China to assist as tutors in co-ordinating this special interdisciplinary intensive course offered jointly by COFA and the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing (CAFA), with additional involvement by the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam. Led by Professor Richard Goodwin, the two-week studio centred on a critical investigation of contemporary urban space, in particular addressing the problem of rapidly increasing car use in Beijing.

Students developed collaborative art and design interventions rethinking the role of the car in public space, with proposals intersecting between the fields of sculpture, installation. performance, architecture, urban planning and industrial design.

We also designed promotional print material for the studio and culminating exhibition.
