The Transmigration Project

Barber, C. (Keynote speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk

Description

The paper proposes the luggage basket as a travelling concept for the relations between craft making and transmigration. This paper will consider the luggage basket as a place-holder for identities past and present through examining its own structure as a vehicle for conceptual thinking. Certain strategies of thinking-through-making are brought to the fore in the analysis of specific examples, through an exploration of the interconnectedness between materials and the landscapes they derive to the distancing of this relationship as the luggage basket travels to unfamiliar terrains.
