How can we use a hanger?

The students from Experimental Floral Design went outing in the woods!

To learn how to use their creativity in product development, the students were each given a clothes hanger ("an unexpected/weird/humourous basis"), with the following assignment: Make a quick sketch approaching the problem "how can we use a hanger?". This sketch turned into an idea, that became the basis of these botanical products, where all the materials where found in the forest. 

The exhibit "On a hanger" can be found both indoors and outdoors at Vea.

   

Botanical product by Linn Pettersson. Close up you can see that all materials (including the string) were found in the forest.

   

Johnny Berg used cones on his hanger, which can be found in the library. Gunn Stenseth made a botanical dress, and hung it outdoors at Vea.
