passage #1 the uprising is the initial phase of the CONSTRUCT, growing unrestrained in less than 3 hours.
About the project:
Of every exhibition, the visitor itself is the most unpredictable, interesting and complex variable.
"CONSTRUCT" is a concept to unfold the behaviour of the people, their interaction and reaction on to previous actions to show a self generated common base of all individuals. "CONSTRUCT" is to be understood as as the theoretical term which is used for the explanation and definition of relations, is to be understood as the physical build object and also as the imperative that implies the direct demand to build.
Just providing a starting point – one of three origins, chosen by the curator, construction material (sticks and tape) and an assignment, the visitors have to work on physical origins the curator has placed in the exhibition. It's the visitors decision, whether and in which way he wants to continue the form, if the object behaves more self contained and gets a very solid but introverted installation or behaves diametrically occupying through growing like a living creature.
When the constructs grew over time by itself, organically and self contained, determined by place and the sum of originators they are able to tell a story, to be read. Each object by itselfs uniqueness.
CONSTRUCT is part of the "An Exhibition in the Cloud", an interdisciplinary collaborative project between the Parsons School of Art, Media and Technology (AMT) and the Media Arts department from University of the Arts in Berlin.
