Creativity Challenge 2015 - Painting and Architecture
This year in April the TLC Educational Trust hosted a Creativity Challenge. The theme of the conference was 'Crossing Boundaries'. It attracted a wealth of national and international speakers - the movers and shakers of creativity. Each speaker generously shared their own unique insights and perspectives. We recorded these talks so that we could share them with our students, friends, stakeholders and anyone else interested in the subject of creativity.
About Peter Adsett:
Peter Adsett, PhD, regularly exhibits art in Australia, New Zealand, New York and Boston. His work is displayed in various institutions and museums. One of his collaborations was with Sam Kebbell on “Humbug” resulting in a dialogue between painting and architecture.
About The Talk:
Humbug is the result of a dialogue between an architect, Sam Kebbell, and a painter, Peter Adsett.
The project was a process where ideas were formed and tested through this dialogue. We set out to investigate the space between painting and architecture. The intention was not to apply paint pictorially but rather to think ‘in painting’ as a disciplinary structure while making architecture and, conversely, to bring architectural thinking to the ‘construction of painting’.
The connection we pursued was not any representational device common to both; the connection was the experience of space and surface.
About the Creativity Challenge Talks:
We will upload one Creativity Challenge video each week.
