OWL Circle Workshops
Collaboration with Danielle Wilde
“How will you go about ﬁnding that thing the nature of which is totally unknown to you?”
“Ah! It’s like if we ask someone 200 years ago and they describe a vacuum cleaner.”
The OWL circle is a structured gathering in which participants are supported to create a personal exploratory device. The device is not designed in any traditional sense, rather it emerges from an open making process that combines art and design ideation techniques with scientiﬁc curiosity and retrospective ethnographic evaluation. Participants are asked to examine, through the making process, a relationship their body has to desire.
