Redesigna is a collaboration of different projects in Augsburg -- each of these projects focuses on alternative living.

Living in Sublimity

"I like the way the markings imply an effort to impose some sort of order on infinity." Dozier Bell, an artist in Rockland, Maine, elaborates on her drawings that encompass natural and conscious elements of the world. In "Living in Sublimity" from PKN Midcoast, Maine Vol. 19 we see her artwork, in its simplicity, lessens our human understanding of these natural forces and gives us a greater sense of sublimity to our surroundings.

7(ish?) Lessons in Handmade Living

“I’m that annoying friend that can’t just sit and watch a movie, I knit and watch a movie. But I also make really awesome homemade gifts for everybody so you know– they can only get so mad about it.” When you hear the word “homestead” what do you think of? I think of the old west in the US of A’s past, of folk heading out into the unknown with just their wits and wares and know-how. In 7(ish?) Lessons in Handmade Living from PechaKucha Night Atlanta Volume 28, speaker Kimberly Coburn would do just fine out there on her own given that she is helping revive the hand-me-down knowledge that was once passed from generation to generation but has somehow stopped now. Sewing, smithy work, growing food, glass making, and more! Tune in to hear Kimberly make the case for bringing back the “old knowledge”!
