Anna Hrachovec (USA), whose knitted universe under the Mochimochi label has a worldwide standing in the DIY-scene, invites to a communal needle and yarn session during her Monster Knitting workshop. the session is open to all: daring knitters are recruited to create an army of wooly creatures, with new Mochimochi patterns created especially for the occasion. beware: this is not a beginners course!

 

17:30 - 19:00 DRAWING SESSION: Sound Creatures w. David Kamp

 


with his sound creatures project, composer and sound designer David Kamp passed on short snippets and loops of audio depicting fantastical sound creations to illustrators, animation filmmakers and graphic artists – and asked them to come up with the visual essence of the sound as a character. the resulting crypto-zoological inventory is filled with unseen life forms, perfectly blending with the sound that has sparked their creation. this year the live drawing session moderated by Miss LaLaVox returns to the Character Lab, inviting you to create images of unheard creatures. sorry, still no nudes – but: 90 minutes of new, raw sounds to trigger your imagination!
