Project web space

I just wanted to share with any of you interested / that means completely open for comments and critiques! a web site made for the project I'm doing for the exhibition. It was meant simply as a tool to communicate remotely with the group for actors who are to perform and collaborate on the piece.

Dear all,

I'm very sorry to tell you that for personal reasons I have to change my plans concerning the urbanity project.

I already had a talk with Mr. Joly and we agreed that instead of the recordings I'll do a kind of life-lecture during the opening night. This lecture will be performed by the same actors that would have done the recordings (as long as they can manage to be free on this evening; if not, I'll find others) and probably by me. The content / the story will stay the same. The lecture will last half an hour. I guess I will only need good microphones - but I'll think about it and send Mrs. Roth an update as soon as possible.

From my point of view, it would be nice to do the lecture IN THE MIDDLE of the exhibition, in front of or besides (or inside?) a work of one of you, and not in another room which is empty and no real part of the exhibition. But I won't do this if the artist whose work it may concern won't agree - that's understood. I'll talk to some of you and see what's possible.

I hope to finally do the recordings in late spring - so maybee an updated version of the project (no more life) could be shown during a later period of the urbanity project, for example at the beginning of May. But one step after another.

Thanks for your attention,
best regards,

Microurbanism collects research and essays from the architect Chi Ti-Nan. It seems interesting to observe the phenomena of transformation and alteration of the contemporary city at a micro-scale.

Did Someone Say Participate?

Did Someone Say Participate?
is a book about contemporary spatial practices.
Some of the authors coincide with some of the participants to our projects. Its literary and research strategy might be inspiring for our future catalogue/publication.

Ligia Nobre / Paola Salerno

I decided to do something simpler for solitude/urbanity - i will work with Paola Salerno on Sao Paulo with her pictures and video and a a text of mine, the project started already 2 years ago, and it will be a good opportunity to concentrate on it and define a format. My fellowship is until the end of March and i will try to stay for 1 more week at least (and maybe one more month) before going to Sao Paulo.
