This week expect
- An inspirational presentation - Akim will share his archive of signature 3D typographic structures
- He’ll be exploring the following questions-
- What is public space? How do I perceive this space? How will I then be perceived by others? What is expected of me?
- New possibilities - answers to these questions and then to implement into concrete interventions in the public spaces to be explored.
Join us at the Lab if you have 5/6 days free to explore and fully immerse yourself in producing spontaneous sculptures citywide.
