Assignment #03: The Art of Perishing
Pupils/students go into their garden, park or forest in search of (natural) materials. They are challenged to give these found materials a new function and learn about the transience of nature. Which materials are really natural and which are not? What compositions can pupils/students make with their found materials? What happens to the materials if you leave them in the sun for one, four or ten days? Inspired by artwork by Miyuki Oka, pupils/students also work with living nature, to stimulate an investigative, creative attitude and a greater awareness of nature.

Assignment #02: Sounds like ... green
Pupils and students work from their homes and explore and analyze nature. They collect data and use this to create an abstract piece of music and a matching visual collage. Thinking about what a tree can sound like, or a river might be a completely new experience. Inspired by their own surroundings and work of artist Antoine Bertin, they learn how they can convert data into sound and how you can get a different relationship with nature through sound.

Assignment #01: Appreciate Your Thing
Pupils and students are challenged to look differently at their home environment and the things around them. Which items have more or less value in this new situation? Can we assign a value to the things around us by giving them a different function, position or role? Inspired by artworks by Nonhuman Nonsense, pupils and students reflect on needs and values, intending to stimulate a conscious, critical and authentic point of view.
