Collective consciousness sculpture building.
A social investigation
Architecture as Performance
A kind of a stigmergy: a mechanism of indirect coordination between agents or actions. The principle is that the trace left in the environment by an action stimulates the performance of a next action, by the same or a different agent. In that way, subsequent actions tend to reinforce and build on each other, leading to the spontaneous emergence of coherent, apparently systematic activity.
“Using a shit load of clear packing tape and through a shared sense of labour, hospitality, and dance, we invite the public to join as we build and dance a sculpture that binds together the social fabric of the performance environment.” Peter Trosztmer
