In 2005, famous designer and architect Maarten van Severen dies. He left us with one of the most extraordinary collections of furniture and several exquisite architectural project but also 4 young sons who carry part of their father’s talent and personality. While we follow the boys’ steps towards a promising future, we reconstruct the tumultuous and tragical life of their father. When his sons get confronted with some of the same challenges and problems as their father, history seams to repeat itself.

“Go straight off the wall” said his dad and Dominic does just that. The film follows Dominic Wilcox, an artist / inventor / designer, on his quest for new ideas….Transforming the mundane and ordinary into something surprising, wondrous and strangely thought provoking.
The title of this workshop has a double meaning as seeds that offer new research and new experience and as a reference to “Semina” – the avant-garde Pop magazine of the late 1950’s and 60’s. “Semina” was strongly interested in collage, a most crucial stylistic innovation in the arts of the twentieth century that provided this extraordinary magazine with a principle for both aesthetic and existential novelty.
This workshop tries to re-think “Semina” in its key-concepts and re-launch a process of research through a very open idea of collage that relates to our contemporary daily life.
