In the context of the PCAI Tilos Artist Residency Programme, the artists-in-residence Hypercomf designed and implemented a participatory open workshop willing to examine and discuss further environmental protection concerning creative methodologies. The Hotel Paper/Blue Hotel educational workshop was free and open to islanders, tourists and children of various age groups that intended to play while learning how we can use sustainable practices in our daily life. The workshop proposed creative techniques and alternative practices using discarded textiles, old cotton sheets and torn fabrics collected from the local hotel units and guest houses of Tilos island and transforming them into handmade paper.
Being open to various age groups, Hotel Paper/Blue Hotel successfully engaged the local community, families, adults and kids while introducing them to sustainable and eco-friendly creative solutions. The programme took place on Eristos beach, in Tilos, on August 17, 2022.
Hypercomf is a multidisciplinary conceptual design artist identity, researching the relationship between nature and culture, domestication, industry, and science, an identity first materialized as a fictitious company profile in Athens, in 2017. Hypercomf’s practice is both research and production driven, each subject informs a continuously developing narrative starring organic and inorganic protagonists. This narrative manifests through interdisciplinary collaborations and community engagement methods of production, space activations, multimedia artworks and sustainable design prototypes and objects.
