Based on the exhibition “Poetics of Encryption”, in this open workshop we will deal with the question of the threshold between abstraction and encryption. When can we talk about one and when about the other? And when do the two become blurred?

With these questions in mind and equipped with modeling clay and tools, we will create sculptural forms. They are based on things from reality, and the function ascribed to them remains the same. How can their forms be altered so that they have little to do with reality and the original object?
