piano stairs

I got this clip forwarded by a friend. In a subway  in Stockholm the stairs were transformed into a piano. You could create your own tunes by stepping, dancing, jumping and bouncing on the stairs.  It is an initiative of Volkswagen and if I understood it well (my Swedish is not that good) it is a stipend they hand out. More info (in Swedish) on www.rolighetsteorin.se according to them  “the easiest way to change people’s behaviour for the better is by making it fun to do. We call it The fun theory.

Creativity has no end

wonderful use of containers. They are transformed into works of and for play! You can swim in them, live in them, skate in them, use it as a stage, etc.

Pedestrian Project

The other  day I found this great performance in the public setting called The Pedestrian Project by New York artist/designer Yvette Heijne. The performers are acting out every day life, but it has a great impact because of the costumes they are wearing which resemble the traffic light icons for pedestrians. Brilliant!!

Social Dialogue

This was an intervention which I thought wouldn’t work and I did it kind of in a hurry. The next morning though, quite some people had written on it. I made some more wish spots the next day, I haven’t been able to monitor them yet, but feel free to send in pictures!

Monitoring

I am trying to explore different ways of monitoring ( the success of) my project. Virtual and real time.
These are some pictures after the intervention or spreading the 50 problems through the city. Almost all of them were taken. And as you can see here, the problem was taken out of the envelop.

Virtual- or via internet- I am testing out if the  six degrees of separation is true. How quickly or in how few steps can I reach people all over the world. I have sent emails to almost everyone I know- especially people who have an international network- and now I am waiting for response..

Intervention

Last night I went to spread 50 problems around the city. I am not sure if they will get noticed- the weather was quite bad as well, so I also don’t know if all of them survived.

I think I need to do this spreading of messages every 2-3 weeks and maybe have some regular points as kaffebrenneriet , where people also can leave their ‘problems’ in a postbox or something.

And I certainly think it needs some theatrical elements. I have approached people in dance, theater, singing, etc and I hope they will work with me to create this performance aspect, which I think will be very important. During this performance-intervention problems could be handed out.

Furthermore I think it would be good if I can make connections between problems we have here and problems that are happening in other parts of the world.
