Below her description:
The project is built around the requirements of the notice: respect the available time and on budget. I have been working on ways to use the 2 euro without any commercial implication.
The idea is to take a practice belonged to my childhood, which is the collective game to place coins on railroad tracks and wait for the passage of the train. The positioning of the coins, with fears that accompany it and waiting for it to accomplish the action, condense so unpredictable shapes that make those coins of special items.
The idea (which will be titled the time and the name of the train) is developed in three phases, two of which will take place before the start of residence: – go to a bank and change in EUR 2 200 coins from 1 cent this passage, in smaller cut existing expands the possibilities of use.
- Set and retrieve the coins on railroad tracks. – The final phase, which will be developed within two hours of the residence will be the preparation of the coins in space will be presented to these three projects, the audience will decide which one to make operational and participate actively in its implementation. For this it is necessary that the residence is public.
