School of Fluid Measures: Negotiation
At the School of Fluid Measures fixed standards and positions are dissolved through scored interactions that leave traces in coloured sand. The patterns that emerge are an exploratory measure of the fluidity of meanings, and the colours represent exemplary social values as resources to debate, distribute, and fuse into new colours and values. The colours represent social values such as freedom, individuality, collectivity) and form the basis of each interaction or ‘negotiation’, after each session colours and values merge into each other to form new coulours and values.
During 18 interactive sessions the installation invites participants and visitors to negotiate the relation between two colours and values. Viewed as a series, the sessions intend to explore ways of mediating, materializing and notating the situated making of meanings and results, inbetween mind and body.
