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!

site-specific, publicly performed “spaces,” made of rope (2007), support by iCommons

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.
