“A leaf a gourd a shell a net a bag a sling a sack a bottle a pot a box a container. A holder. A recipient.”

Ursula K. Le Guin, “The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction”, 1986.

Holders is a collection of 3D containers generated from user’s handwritings, and inspired by Le Guin’s essay.

As individuals write and share stories or memories on the touch screen, new shapes are generated as pots, vases, containers. Recipients. Holders. The amalgamation of multiple stories creates ruptured or flowing shapes, made whole, and printed using wood filaments.

The project was created as part of the finals exhibition for the Computational Arts MA at Goldsmiths UOL.
