an InviTe For mAking OrnAmentS is a workshop, an intervention, a picnic, and a video taking place around the Serpentine Pavilion 2009 located in Hyde Park. The workshop is suited for artists, architects, kids, gardeners, and designers. There will some be readings and the participants can draw, develop shapes, objects and additions, patterns, pop-ups, and excessive forms that in a wider sense relate to the ornamental and ornaments. The theme of the ornament here refers to the labyrinthine, measured, controlled, repetitive and pattern-like architecture of Victorian Gardens. A reference from cinema is Last Year in Marienbad by Alain Resnais. Theoretically the ornament references the idea of “Das Ornament der Masse” (the mass ornament) as explored by Siegfried Kracauer (1927). This framework leads into contemporary thinking around the construction of “vast” and “full” spaces, and complex assemblages in architecture and technologically informed environments and networks.
