Testing Grounds

Smashing Things With Hammers offers an introduction to Process Art; a powerful metaphor for the life process itself. This workshop introduces the notion that a work of art can be just as much about the process than outcome. It uses play—through the destruction and reconstruction of everyday objects—as a critically important skill that professional artists use to generate creative process, ideas and discourse.

Participants will be asked to smash objects made of ceramic, plastic, glass and metal with a rubber mallet. They will also be asked to handle the broken objects and reconstruct them into new objects, and possibly use safety step ladders and/or lift furniture.

Personal Protective Equipment including eye protection glasses, helmet and gloves are provided by Testing Grounds for each participant, and a safety net is erected by Testing Grounds to minimise the potential of any material ricocheting as a result of it being smashed. Participants are thoroughly briefed and supervised by experienced workshop leaders at all times.

While all efforts are made to identify, assess, and control risk, Smashing Things With Hammers is an interactive and physical workshop. Participants and/or responsible supervisors must acknowledge there is some risk that cannot be controlled, and agree to follow any directions by workshop facilitators and/or Testing Grounds staff.

Testing Grounds cannot take responsibility for any personal injuries that might occur during this workshop.
