Weekend Work

It is good to be chartered by younger folks for one or other of their projects. This time it was the "Rotory Club": an unused part of a street in a town is given a temporary structure in mainly recuperated material. People are gathered to produce something in three days, which is then shown at the 'finissage' at the end of the fourth day. It is meant to cross fertilize each other, to learn about each others creative outlook. There were photo shoots, a sweet animation film with paper sheep coming out of a wall and running away, projected high up on a derelict wall. There was a lot of fuzzy activity going on in which the low tech environment poses challenges for the high tech performances. Of course I am partial to the art documentary with interviews about the future in different cities of the world, with the added the interviews by the locals of the venue.
