Abstract

CAMP synthesizes a mordant take on the activity of Camp /Camping. CAMP highlights how westernized principals of possession spread into ideas of leisure, ecology, ‘freedom’, and relationships. Concepts from Susan Sontag’s writings on Camp (1964) flow through the bright patterned textiles that create this synthetic ecology, representing ‘a love for the unnatural…[for the] frivolous, [and] extravagant’. The ‘tent’ being an ungiving structure that passively consumes what’s around it like ‘’ a kind of white that is not created by bleach but that itself is bleach.This white was aggressively white. It did its work on everything around it, and nothing escaped.”(Chromophobia, David Batchelor)
