The Wireframe Series: Sentimental Construction # 1

More from Croatia soon, but we performed the first “Sentimental Construction” here before guests started arriving, and I’m not sure it could have gone any better. Watch the video!

These are ephemeral arrangements that, nonetheless, carve out space and frame their various contexts; they are “sentimental” in the tensions they create between sadness and playfulness, nostalgia and possibility, construction and emergence, the pre-formed and the per-formed.

    How interesting. Lovely to see the inhibition of the children creating a game from such basic materials.
