The 2013 edition of Hello Wood, a multidisciplinary art camp where well-known and recognized experts and artists share their knowledge with talented students, this year gave 120 young designers and architects the opportunity to work with the field’s best international minds in order to rediscover the significance of vanishing human connections.

“The art camp’s new mission was to make an attempt to embrace and strengthen the natural human bonds and to gently shape the interaction forms of a community with their installations.” say the organizers. “This way, the camp motivated students of architecture and design, together with the young artists of this generation again to approach architectural matters with a social viewpoint, and also to think and work in a community. During one week, the participants created 12 installations that were rated by a professional jury on the last day.”

“All work produced in the camp carries two attributes: it’s mostly made of wood and it’s characterized by an interplay of art and social commitment. Hello Wood integrates various fields of art, design and science; it creates community and encourages talent. It brings together students and professionals across borders, moreover connects everyday people with the designer community. This year the camp was held in the countryside close to lake Balaton, on the premises of an old manor, Csorompuszta, amongst endless cornfields, with an astonishing view on a valley surrounded by hills.”

“This year’s motto, Step closer! summarizes two goals at the same time: to strengthen the bond between people, nature and built environment with the tools of design and architecture (and of course a lot of wood!) and to motivate young creative minds to step out of their urban, modern, digital environment and to try to solve real, evident social problems by thinking in a community and working with their hands. The motto also enables the students from different countries to work together as it reflects on a symptom experienced all over the world, that suggests the same questions about human interaction, the connection between nature and arts and of course the role of design and architecture in social matters everywhere.”

Stepping out of the light-polluted Berlin, he wanted to create an installation that was inspired by the stars and the bright sky: he designed a huge, funnel shaped, wind-waved planetarium."
