Workshop and talk at Artez Zwolle

Year 2019

From invisible writing to visible mending. Thank you Shailoh Phillips for inviting me to spend an afternoon with Master Interior Design students at Artez Zwolle. It was a nice chance to talk about how invisible writing brought me to visible mending. The session was then followed by figurative mending while chatting about cultures of apology (making amends) and pondering about what over-mending and speculative mending could mean.
