HOW CAN WE MOVE?
Where lies the centre of the world and who
decides where it lies?
Every individual is a central point that’s
The Paraplufabriek as centre of the world where the artists thought about the theme mobility in the world. The result was a panoramic map drawn on all walls at the exhibition site. Nearby and far-away images were assimilated, projected and drawn in the right direction of position. The further the images were from the Paraplufabriek, the smaller and higher they were drawn.
A conception list, made by two planners consisting of one hundred ‘mobility terms’, formed the condition for each image that we, the artists, chose to use in the panorama. We used images that we found on the Internet and we used photographs made by one of us at different places in the country each day during the exhibition as well. These photographs were emailed directly to the Paraplufabriek. The person who remained working in the Paraplufabriek draw it directly on the wall.
We also used a weblog where people could follow our process every day, ten days in total.
