“Rethinking of Heritage” through a workshop of 3D collage organized by İstanbul Bilgi University Faculty of Communication  BA Program in Visual Communication Design in collaboration with EFOLT Projects await its participants.

With the artistic and technological application methods planned to be established between digital objects, participants are expected to experience the following problems during and after the workshop. Do reproduced physical objects with 3 dimensional abstraction and collage techniques reconceptualize the physicality of what is called heritage via personal and social values? How does this desire of physicality affects and shapes the experiential aura of objects in cyberspace with re-production techniques? This workshop will encourage participants to experience an expressionist approach to abstraction and collaging techniques via digital objects used in the specified software.

Candidates wishing to participate in the workshop are expected to visualize and textualize an object of subjective value for themselves and deliver it by mail until the specified date.

With the support of 3D printing by 3Dörtgen, participants will have a chance to witness the relation between both physical and digital conversion processes of the artworks made in the workshop. These 3D printed objects will also be exhibited for a week at BLOK art space (Büyük Valide Han- room 53) for there is also an integrality of a physical structure in representation of the concepts time and belonging.

Candidates can apply to this workshop with an e-mail submission of the files mentioned. This workshop is free of charge and has a capacity of 20 participants.
