OUTLINE DAY TWO::
We live in an everyday life of excess and waste. Sometimes this feeling gets overwhelming when building creative concepts and event installations. Things being bought + twisted + hustled around in order to create something others see as *art*
It is indeed a refreshing experience to spend our days here scavenging. Much of the nostalgic pieces from Arma17's history lay in a storage near by and we found our favorite memory today. Plus the fact that whilst cleaning the location the organizers saved all the bits and pieces of found objects- rusty machine parts fast become treasures to be collected and shown in a new light. Rotting and broken pieces of wood become bridges ! We moved studios recently and even saved some old polaroid photocopies to include a little slice of our past...
An apple tree's branch broke and was quickly appropriated for a taste of nature inside our abandoned building. A peaceful sunset was spent collected meadow flowers for our hanging gardens... This approach to a festival build up combines destruction with rebirth and that makes for a special mood++
