Lucy + Jorge Orta Pattern Book: an Introduction to Collaborative Practices Paperback / softback
Edited by Paula Orrell
Famed for work such as 'Refuge Wear', which crosses boundaries between fashion, architecture and sculpture, Lucy and Jorge address concerns which are both contemporary and topical - homelessness, for example - but which also tap into ancient traditions and cultures, such as nomadism. "Jorge+Lucy Orta Pattern Book: An Introduction to Collaborative Practices" explores projects by Jorge and Lucy Orta, which have been co-produced with community groups in locations as diverse as Johannesburg, Melbourne and Nottingham.
The book serves both purely aesthetic as well as participatory purposes and can be used as a resource for the reader to set up their own workshops and education programmes; it includes detachable pattern sheets the reader can use as a starting point in the creation of their own projects.
This beautifully illustrated book will captivate a diverse audience of artists, fashion designers, engineers, architects, community workers, and teachers.
