This week I have been working on my pieces for the exciting upcoming Traces 2014 event which I am proud to be a part of.
Here is an excerpt from their site on the event- as my explanation would not do any justice.
Traces is an immersive and theatrical multi-disciplinary art & design event inspired by real stories and histories of buildings. Every story, however hidden, leaves a trace… Have you ever wandered through a dilapidated and empty building, wishing you could see it as the last inhabitants left it?
For ten days in February 2014, ‘Traces’ will take a neglected old building and bring it alive again with the smells, tastes, touches and sounds of days gone by. Immersive and theatrical, ‘Traces,’ is a new kind of art and design event, showcasing the work of over 100 artists. Painstakingly researched, it will map and elaborate on the actual stories of the inhabitants of our event’s secret location.
The public are invited to discover these histories for themselves; wandering through the rooms left as if only a moment before, and unpicking their secrets. Interacting with the specially commissioned and selected art and design pieces, to unravel clues about the building and it’s inhabitants, whilst also having the opportunity to buy their favorites at the end of the night.
Amazing right? Traces and us designers involved need your help to make this event happen! You can assist in helping up and coming designers and those planing the event to showcase their work and form a truly unique experience for its viewers and people involved, by pledging a little bit of money.
