Krabbesholm Rituals

Design can be a powerful tool to stage a behaviour and choreograph our interactions with the physical world. Taking cues from ritualism and its approach of connecting humans with objects/plats/minerals etc, in this workshop we will design not from human perspective, but fromthe perspective of the site. Exploring new ways of behaviour with design, rethinking its spaces, emotions and relations can be a way to enchant the environment. Guest teachers Merve Tuna & Aysenaz Toke, designers from Istanbul states these perspectives on design. During this workshop, students would be exploring the site of Krabbesholm and everyday rhythm of life there. They proposed new rituals and designed their enabling objects, (objects/garment/mask) aiming to enchant it.
