Summary of the workshop activities

I created a spreadsheet on Google Drive as a summary of all the workshop activities we have talked about today,  to which I have invited all of you, I think. I have tried to fill it with as much as possible, and there are also some questions that I think are important for us to think about while refining the activities. You can change or add stuff if you consider them wrong or unimportant, but I think it would be good if we could get an overview of where we are with all the workshop activities so we won’t forget anything. 

Examples for the cube of contradictions

Here are some examples of contradictions for the cube, which Marianna and Christina developed. Maybe you already have some of them, I don’t remember them all, but here are just some suggestions.

Local – Global

Motion – Stillness (Active – Passive)

 

Technique – Strength

Physical – Meditative

 

Simple – Complicated

Positive – Negative

 

Masculine – Feminine

Competition – Cooperation

 

Public – Private

Fun – Necessity

Transparent Tubes

We had a great research at BAUHAUS today but unfortunately we couldn’t find transparent tubes. I found this company and they are in Kungsbacka http://www.gop.se/.

@ Veera & Marttiina: Maybe you could check tomorrow if they have cheap 🙂 tubes and maybe they have restpieces they give us for free … If they have a little bit different sizes, I think it doesn’t matter…

Method summary: Bike Wheel

Concept
Workshop station lottery – What to do? Where to go? Spin the wheel and get a recommendation on where to begin.

Construction
The bike wheel is mounted on a wooden board, with sticker symbols for each station, as well as the tagline “What to do? Where to go?”. Bike beads add the dimension of sound.

Placement
The Bike Wheel should welcome the visitors, so it should be one of the first things you meet when you get up the stairs. The width of the board will be 1,1 m and placed on an easel it will roughly take up a floorspace of 1.1 x 1m – but add to this also the space for people to stand and interact with the wheel.

Needed material
A wooden board 1100x1500mm
Stickers with symbols and tag line: “What to do? Where to go?”
Plastic pin or flap (to slow the wheel)
Arrow
(Spray paint?)
Bike beads

To-do
Sticker design and production
Clean the wheel (and perhaps spray paint it)
Make the arrow
Construction

Questions and details regarding the construction will be discussed with workshop staff tomorrow morning. This will shape the working process and give a more detailed To-do-list.
