Created By: Kate Hartman

What happens when everyone at a cocktail party is covered in spikes?

You are cordially invited to participate in a micro workshop + social experiment.

Porcupine Workshop + Spiky Cocktail Hour + 6:00-6:30 PM: Workshop - constructing Porcupine wearables + 6:30-7:30 PM: Spiky Cocktail Hour - with spiky food & spiky drinks

We will spend the first 30 minutes assembling Porcupine wearables - wearable, spiky body-extensions constructed of cardboard and fasteners that allow you to take up more space. They can be used to expand your footprint and sometimes your personal expression. This design TBD, but check out a previous example here:

Materials will be provided and no previous experience is required.

The remaining time will consist of an elegant and prickly cocktail hour. Adorned in our spikes with an extended sense of embodiment we will eat, drink, and interact.

Photos and video of the festivities will be collected and shared. Spike and/or cocktail themed attire is strongly encouraged.

Please RSVP by June 11th so we have adequate time to prepare the necessary materials!


You must be signed in to comment.

can\'t get there in time, removing myself from RSVP. Really interested in this though--will you all be posting any slides or tutorial notes?
