Boing Being - Saturday 15


We're finished!

Despite the technical problems we managed to do the show on Saturday evening. The movies here show a glimpse of the projections that we shot. Thanks to people who supplied us drawings that we used to make the animations. We'll be editing a better quality movie of the whole show later. And thanks for Good Band for the soundtrack.

As a conclusion we can tell that we managed to keep the budget minimum and recycle all of the cardboard of the Nordic, Danish and Belgian pavillions. So, give trash a chance, please.

We ran the workshop with main theme of Architecture of Mind and daily subthemes of Fear, Machine and Self-portrait. The main thing, however, was to make people do something differently. This was sort of an experiment on play. From another angle you can see the global society work more and more like a machine, the place of individual inside it defined by fear and by one's capability to handle it. That's where you are and what you are. It's a changing in-between state of being that we are.

Thanks, we're off!
