Live+Work+SMdP=One Intense Experience Day 5

Time for presentations on the stage outside our ex Lavateria. We also had a guest critic who is an artist and also a psychiatrist.  He explained also historical events that lead to the closing of the psychiatric ward and he also explained the conditions patients where in through their mental illnesses.  The critics went over our “word map” that we made of materials we found in the ex Lavateria and other handy materials.  The critique went well, but the next part was that we needed to find materials for the big mappa mundi on the dance floor and expand our knowledge onto the floor.

After a quick lunch, our group set off into the dumpster next to our site for tomorrows exhibit.  We found some really good materials, mainly we found these different color rubber hoses that worked great for our idea of mapping out paths on the dance floor for the mappa mundi.  Need less to say the mappa mundi went well and we covered the entire dance floor, unlike some groups that just “hogged” a portion of it to explain there idea.  I felt our group did a better job explaining our experiences throughout the week as apposed to just abstractly defining one or very few ideas.

It was a long day and we sure did well.  Tomorrow is going to be tough because we only have a day to organize ourselves and clean up/set up our sites for a walking exhibit/conceptual presentation.  Its going to be a long and interesting day.
