Tutorial in Knowing, 2013

Tutorial in knowing was a project exploring how logic is formulated in the face of the unfamiliar, specifically within the realm of craft. Each object in the project was created by a volunteer with limited sewing experience presented with muslin pattern pieces and given a time frame in which to create something using every piece. Their guidance was limited to a brief tutorial on how to operate a domestic sewing machine, and assistance with troubleshooting the machine where need be, so as to limit any interference in their creative process.

 

 

How does one go about creating their own understanding of a problem such as this?

Where does the knowledge behind that understand then stem from?

How would that influence the finished pieces?

What forms would be created when the ‘ideal’ object is obscured?

What forms have been discredited by a ‘knowing’ creator?
