For the kids it was a way to have a more conscious look for the surrounding forms and to see what interests them in the forms and how they can create their own forms.
The work with combining different inner and outer forms led to the idea to combine different forms by stacking them. With this technique you are able to create new forms by using all of the already existing forms. It is a fast way to create sculpture like forms in a playful and experimental process.
It also leads to questions about how we want to design. Is the amount of existing forms not enough? Is it still possible to create new forms or is it only a repetition of the existing forms? How can the existing forms be used in different context? Also what beauty is contained in everday forms that you rarely notice?
The first task for the kids was to make three different cups. The only parameters to follow were the measurement of the cups ( height of the hand, the diameter on top length of the finger, easy to hold with one hand). The purpose in my cups were to show the kids that you can still create different aesthetics with set parameters.
