Make your very own pre-fab swarm trap – a safe house for honey bees – to take home and install with Honey Fingers and Many Many. Hotel Hotel’s resident beekeepers Sarah and Dermot Asis Sha’Non will share the magic of bee architecture including wax and comb.
When did you last pull something apart and fix it? In subtle and overt ways we are frequently told ‘no’ to repair. Most of today’s consumer products don’t even come with disassembly or repair instructions.
This talk breaks open the concept of repair, why it has become so difficult and how people are taking matters into their own hands. It will chart the history of repair (once a fundamental necessity) and how it’s become a grass roots movement, even a political statement.
Object Therapy is a research and design project designed to help us rethink our consumption patterns and reevaluate the broken objects that surround us. Join us for the exhibition opening featuring 30 repaired objects and excerpts of video interviews of the owners.
