First workshop

The first workshop was one of the most interesting ones for me throughout the seminars and workshops. We were asked to find things that connect nature with culture according to the keywords in the given book. During that one hour not only did we notice lots of artificial artefacts getting together so peacefully with nature, but also broadened our thoughts.

Among the ones we drew, the most interesting ones for me are the Arcade and Calton Hill, corresponding to Boundaries and Islands. The arcade is a kind of boundary for human, walking pass it means getting from one place to another. But for natural creatures, it makes no difference. It is human who gives the arcade meaning. (Could that be a point when people design in a more environmentally friendly way, we reconsider if the meaning or function is really needed in our life?)  Calton Hill also resembles an Island cause it’s surrounded by heavy traffic that are all artificial products. We have changed the nature in such a huge way we didn’t even realize it clearly.
