The Wonderfruit Festival
An annual celebration of art, music and life, presents a collaborative art and craft project by UK and Thai designer makers to explore the meaning of craft, sustainability, and innovation. Wonderfruit will engage a Scottish and three Thai designer maker as well as local basket weavers from Chiang Mai and Chonburi, to work on an installation of "Whale", an organic art piece.
"Whale" - PAVILION
The pavilion resembles a metal cave structure comprising of rows of metal arches made from scrap metals from Saruta’s factory in Bangkok. The structure, inspired by Naomi’s interest in 2D and 3D forms, offers fluidity and will be decorated by thousands of woven bamboo fish designed by Vassana to reflect prosperity and represent the symbol of Thai craft. The pavilion will be completed by Piboon’s attention to detail. It will be lid at night to provide interaction between light and forms.
Date: 16th -19th February 2017
Venue: Siam Country Club, Pattaya, Thailand
