Viewpoints for Festival of Thrift featured temporary sculptures, installations and artworks about clean air and environmental sustainability that were displayed across the Tees Valley.
Cabinet of Curiosity created an installation called Green House that was inspired by Victorian garden architecture and Japanese design. The installation combined contemporary fabrication techniques with Japanese crafts and contained a living environment of house plants that possess air cleaning properties.
Participatory paper craft activities provided the opportunity for children and families to create artwork inspired by nature. The artwork was transformed into a laser cut surface pattern that decorated the walls of the installation.
Thrilling making process and beautifully crafted outcome.
