Context 

When my friend Emma Collard and I were attending hula hoop lessons, we found our bodies adapting to a new limb – the hula hoop. After each lesson our teacher would summarise what happened during the workshop into a short ‘recap’.

Brief

Fascinated by the nature of the hula hoop lesson recap, and the way that the hula hoop became an appendage, we decided to undertake a process-driven collaboration to explore the theme of a ‘Recap’ – a playback of events and actions.

Process

Create - play - document.
We created our own objects, interacted with them as if they were body parts and then documented our own recap as an exhibition. And we had a lot of fun along the way.

Outcome

Combining our two artistic practices graphic design and sculpture, the exhibition became a playground for viewers to be inspired by the 2D recap graphics, and also find their own way of interacting with the sculptural objects.

Materials

An array of colourful, materials including vinyl, foam, elastic, and plastic, were collected and assembled. As though inventing a new sport, we wanted to create objects that invited you to play with them through their tactile and robust qualities.

Interactions

We let playful interactions with the sourced materials define how the objects would be created and displayed in the space.

Graphics

Interaction between the body and objects gave the sculptures a new form, recapped by the graphics on the walls.
