Our Patterns, Our Architectures

Join us for this FREE collaborative workshop for Troy Glow with artist Natan Diacon-Furtado. Participant work to be projected publicly as part of Troy Glow!

This short 2-hour workshop will utilize intuitive pattern-making and collage techniques to explore the spaces that make us, and the spaces we make, through a globally southern heritage of pattern-making as a language, art and craft. Following a short introduction to the pattern-making process of Troy Glow participating artist Natan Diacon-Furtado, workshop participants will utilize provided scrap paper to craft their own patterns that reflect on the architectural spaces, details and symbols that make up their daily life. 

Participant-created patterns will be digitized by the artist and projected on the rear façade of the Key Bank Building, 33 3rd Street – viewable from Broadway & Franklin Alley, for a special community takeover weekend of the Troy Glow digital projection installation “Our Patterns, Our Architectures.”

Natan is a Brazilian and American collaborative artist and designer trained as a cultural anthropologist and architect. Their work embraces a globally southern heritage of fundamental geometries and pattern-making as visual translation devices for experiencing and exploring issues of race, identity and community through collaboration.

They have been the subject of two solo museum shows at Aomori Contemporary Art Centre (2022) and Indiana University’s Wiley House Museum (2021), with additional exhibitions at Cecelia Coker Bell Gallery (2021), PlySpace (2020), and group showings at The REEF (2022), Terrain Biennial (2021), De 7 a 5 (2021), Stella Jones Gallery (2021), Peep Space (2021), Venice Biennale of Architecture (2014), Delft Architectural Biennial (2014), and Buenos Aires Biennale of Architecture (2013).
