Event details

Delivered by James Langdon and Peter Nencini, this workshop will introduce you to the mysterious science of pataphysics, as a resource for designers.

Pataphysics is the invention of a nineteenth-century French author, Alfred Jarry, defined by him as the "science of imaginary solutions."

Pataphysics continues today as an international college dedicated to Jarry's idea that every event in the world is a unique happening, not subject to any general or repeatable laws.

Drawing on the college's ideology and publications, this workshop will explore exceptions and discontinuities in simple design exercises.

This workshop is fully booked.


Materials: Please bring your preferred writing and drawing tools and materials.
Ten places available.
Suitable for people aged 18+.
