ONLINE Workshop: Uncertainty – Exploring not knowing
Tuesday, 9 March 2021
2 – 4pm
Everyone is welcome to join this experimental collaborative STEAMlab workshop hosted by artist, Daniel Eatock.
An improvised workshop made up on the spot. Not rehearsed. Raw. Honest. Ad libbed. Exploring not knowing. Unfolding and taking shape when we meet. Without an agenda or goals. Responding to the cliché ‘we are living in uncertain times’. Uncertainty sits at the heart of all creative endeavours and pursuits. Embracing and leaning into the discomfort this brings, we can accept how to be uncomfortable exploring and making the unknown.
About Daniel Eatock
Daniel Eatock is a London-based artist whose practice is shaped by discovery, invention and an alert sensitivity to coincidence and contradiction. You can view Daniel’s work on his website here and on Instagram here.
“My specialism is lateral thinking, resolving the complexity encountered in the world with reductive poetic logic. I intertwine commercial and cultural practice: responding to the paradox of daily life and the complexities of project assignments. I seek focused solutions that feel inevitable. I get there by starting at the beginning, asking why, what if… then making sense of the things I find with radical acceptance and by embracing truth” Daniel Eatock.
What’s a STEAM Lab?
STEAM Labs are highly experimental collaborative workshops, developed by STEAMhouse, where guest contributors guide participants through a process that impels them to think about the development of projects, products, and services in completely new ways. Each STEAM Lab is different but every one is underpinned by five guiding principles: conversation, exploration, collaboration, openness and newness.
What is STEAMhouse?
STEAMhouse is a space to experiment, test and develop new knowledge. At the project’s heart are five key principles conversation, exploration, collaboration, openness and newness.
Open since early 2018, and developed by Eastside Projects with Birmingham City University, STEAMhouse is currently focussed on supporting businesses – which includes self-employed, sole trading artists – from across England to access and explore the potential of digital technologies, produce new products and services (including artworks) and develop businesses and sustainable practices.
STEAMhouse membership is free. Find out more about joining HERE
