Participants are invited to join in as active players or audience members in the process of building structures. The process can be interpreted as movement, dance or a game. Through this physical interaction of seeing, interpreting and play a better understanding of contemporary art emerge.
The completed structures will then become a temporary addition to the museum show. Video too!
