Atelier HOKO
Science of Secondary: Door, Window, Pipe
Singapore, 2015
Self-published, Softcover
Set of 3 Books with one instruction manual

175 x 250 mm

For the first instalment of a building-centric research initiative under the Science of the Secondary series, the common Door, Window and Pipe were chosen as starting points towards an inquiry into the openings of a dwelling. Drawing from the findings of this study, Atelier HOKO developed another mad afternoon at home; an activity piece that contains sixty instructional postcards to be performed by individuals in the comfort of their own home. Using the familiarity of everyday actions and materials to investigate and experience the different openings, this project attempts to draw a closer and more intimate relationship between people and buildings.

About The Artist

Atelier HOKO (2009) is an independent research lab focusing on investigations towards material and immaterial conditions that make up our experience of the everyday. The programme is developed in response to questions on how the role and practice of design today can move beyond its perceived perimeters. The atelier hopes to cultivate an open-ness and ability to un-know, bringing about a heightened curiosity towards all phenomena which can lead to potential applications within the creative field. Part of design studio, HOKO founded in 2002 by Alvin Ho and Clara Koh.

THEBOOKSHOP
by THEBOOKSHOW

THEBOOKSHOW is a Singapore-based initiative that began in 2014. It aims to act as a platform for aspiring artists to showcase books conceived out of passion. Through the use of the book, a basic and familiar medium, THEBOOKSHOW advances towards being a mediator between the art world and the general public. Our hope is to bring a renewed perspective upon our eyes. We believe very much in challenging the medium - moving away from the conventional form that the book takes. In time, we hope to build a substantial database advocating that the book form is an art in and of itself.
