Awaroa Masterclass Stutchbury & Leplastrier

Peter Stutchbury & Richard Leplastrier ran the Awaroa Masterclass this past week (2014). Amongst vast landscapes majorly empty of human affects we talked about how to approach the land from an occupation standpoint - who lived here before? What could our relationship to the space be if we were free of only considering our needs? What shadows are already cast...all the things that might predict the treatment of a potential dwelling.

One building in the area has nails hammered into the wall - the occupants son is an artist and so when they re-roofed the house he took the giant rusted nails and drove them, shallow so as to cast shadows, into the side of the house. The shape he formed is insect in nature.
