              A bench that seduces people to get information over the services offered by the social system. Article 22: “Everyone, as a member of society, has the right to social security and is entitled to realization, through national effort and international co-operation and in accordance with the organization and resources of each State, of the economic, social and cultural rights indispensable for his dignity and the free development of his personality.” The aim of project NoProblemBench! is to enhance pro-social human behavior and strengthen the social cohesion in the city’s neighborhoods. These social dynamics depend on several parameters and are therefore extremely complex. Students observed some of these parameters, focusing on the idea of community: how can I enhance the creation of a caring community within a neighborhood? How do I turn the neighborhood’s dynamics into a constructive phenomenon? How do I trigger people’s curiosity to make them aware of the services that are offered to grant them social security? How do I overcome the feeling of shame and inadequateness of being in a society whose mechanisms I ignore? Students reached the creation of a final design concept that elaborates on social security in a bottom up perspective: I do not wait for the social services to find me, but I am seduced, by a product, to actively seek knowledge about my rights, with the help of people of my neighborhood that know these rights better. They designed an interactive bench, endowed with an informative screen. Each bench addresses a social security theme, such as housing or health care. You can browse through the content in a playful way, choosing your language and asking your questions, directly writing with a finger on the screen. If you don’t want to be seen, you can even post your doubts via sms and people can leave their answer, as in an internet forum. The answer can be left both by social services and by other people of the same neighborhood. This concept has an informative component, but also a psychological one: it is reassuring, both for who gets his answer and for who contributes to giving it, making her feel useful for the community, and as such, more self-confident and optimistic. The bench, which can be placed in various locations, such as bus stops, squares, playgrounds, shows how much the theme it treats is felt and questioned within the local community, by increasing its size, through means of a light projection around it. The attempt is to train people to take care of each other and through this, they get closer to the available social assistance, strengthening the community feeling that new immigrants need as a first step to integration.

                    This performance was broadcast live via video conference to the 9th Annual Korean Experimental Arts Festival 2010. Prisoners (Mitch Van Dusen and John Bonafede) stand in a kind of limbo until Officer (Levin Santos) comes in to extract intelligence from them. Van Dusen is cuffed and thrown into a chair beside a piano. For his resisting Bonafede is cuffed behind his back while Van Dusen begins to pound out a score. Santos repeatedly dunks Bonafede in a tub of water asking, "What do you know?" Soon Van Dusen is ordered to shut up and is hooded but he continues to play. Dedicated to those whose human rights are violated because of who they are or what they wish to express.
