Presented by the Slow Art Collective
A slow art collaborative installation for all ages
All learning areas
Archi-Loom is a giant, three-dimensional installation utilising re-purposed materials, including bamboo, recycled rope, various fabrics and other found materials.
It’s an interactive construction, made by the Slow Art Collective, that everyone can help build together, including school groups, children and the community. After Slow Art Collective has constructed the giant loom installation, participants fill in the walls of the structure by weaving in the various materials.
The Archi-Loom installation also includes various game elements, such as weaving basket goals with DIY recycled balls, various DIY primitive instruments, and mandala making with found/recycled materials on the ground.
This a colourful and playful work that responds to the various sites and needs of the different contexts it inhabits. The installation will offer a space that invites areas of play, rest, craft and discovery.
Participants enjoy the idea of weaving the loom inside and outside, and having authorship of a large, slowly evolving collaborative installation.
