See the world with fresh eyes through a flat lay workshop where discarded or ignored objects will be given new purpose and life. Design your own flat lay and get a photo of it to take home.
The Office of Collecting and Design is a museum of lost and forgotten objects located in the heart of Las Vegas. They are known for their carefully arranged flat lay photographs of colorful items. During this workshop, Jessica, the museum’s curator, will bring a giant box of treasure/trash for you to sort through. You’ll be coached through the arrangement of a flat lay with help. The flat lays are then photographed by Jessica, and each creator walks away with a tiny, instant film print.
This workshop fosters an appreciation for the many overlooked details of our day-to-day. Participants often express that they are suddenly seeing the world with fresh eyes—objects they might have thrown away or ignored in the past are given new purpose and life, illuminating the nature of “value” and encouraging new forms of re-use. Free but registration required.
