PiCMAT is a social ritual of creating paintings from unnecessary plastic bags. People can join by bringing unnecessary plastic bags / creating threads from plastic bags / weaving (learning and teaching others) / sharing stories / observing.  The participants are welcome to sit at the loom and to make as many lines as they want, together with someone or on their own. It is the time and space for meeting, slowing down and experiencing the current moment in the urban rapid environment. PiCMAT is opposing rush, mass production and labour where delivering a product is the essence. The project crosses the boundaries of a maker and a viewer and draws new interpersonal relations. While PiCMAT weaving, brands on bags dissolve and transform into the abstract tactile painting. There the colours, forms, patterns and words from brands become a new visual form. PiCMAT paintings have a size of a personal space. The paintings are also used for creating the space in the performance Nomadic Picnic. PiCMAT paintings reflect on the current social environment, where the issues of conscious living, sharing, communicating and communal creating are urgent as never before.  The ritual took place in Bos en Lommerplein 148 (January-May 2018) and in Van Eesteren museum (December 2018).
