Rob Poynton - reflections session
Rob and John spend almost as much time reflecting on the witnessing session, as the actual sesssion itself. John always sets each filming up as an experiment setting no expectations - if we are to sit in silence for the whole time, then that is just a great an outcome as if the person speaks. It so happens that Rob stayed in silence for 45min....and a whole lot happened.

Vincent Dubourg - Sculptor and furniture artist (full version)
A graduate of Arts-Déco, Vincent Dubourg in 2006 became the youngest artist at the Carpenters Workshop Gallery in London and in 2007 imagined The Bird Car for the Musée de la Chasse et la Nature in Paris. He then began an international career and exhibited successively at Design Miami / Basel in Switzerland and at Tajan in Paris. In 2011, he won the PAD Moët Hennessy prize in London. For many years, in the solitude of his large studio, the artist-craftsman has been developing his prototypes and fashioning works of art that do not claim their function: this only appears in a second step, thus questioning the traditional contemporary furniture design. Vincent Dubourg gives birth to organic, dynamic and sculptural forms that tell a story, that of the mutation of reality and the inalienable possession of nature over society. Between furniture, sculptures, architecture and staging, it offers a new interpretation of object design. https://carpentersworkshopgallery.com/artists/vincent-dubourg/
