Model making

We are developing a model of the Ute Ulay mine site which will help us with our ideation process and assist with the communication of our ideas at the Artposium on August 13th. In keeping with one of our priorities: Sustainability, the model is constructed from recycled materials, cardboard boxes, wood, metal and other bits and pieces of interesting scrap from the mine site itself. The model is beginning to take on some character, a combination of low tech D.I.Y and model making precision.

The arduous process of making the contours of the site combined with the joys of 3 functioning glue guns helps us to imagine what might be possible for the future reuses of the buildings and environs.
