ArtScapers make space to take another perspective, to see the familiar in unfamiliar ways, and take on different ideas to guide thinking. They find ways to take on a different point of view. Looking differently is a conscious action to make the familiar strange. Intentionally changing scale, dimensions, direction, orientation. Viewing from a new angle, challenging oneself to use our senses in a different way.
ArtScapers have explored looking differently by scaling things up, recycling yourself, tuning in to the sky and renaming.
"When I tried the activities I wasn’t so free in my thinking! That can make you feel a bit uncomfortable. I suppose because you think ‘oh I should be more creative’ and you know, as a teacher I should be more creative, but then I hear what the children say and it’s like ‘oh I want to be like that!’. You kind of learn from the kids as well"
