This is an example of reflections that the school-kids do in their notebooks. They do this when we meet them at "fritis" in-between the interventions.

found this new installation in the ring, in black and white, made by someone.
It was interesting to see another color than the white one, maybe we got some

The first intervention by the school kids from
Frölundaskolan. So far we have prepared for the intervention in the vague space
together with the kids and finally today we had the opportunity to make it
happen for the first time. Again the kids are really making use of the whole
space and easily come up with own ideas on what they want to do and how to do
it. Big thanks to all the kids and the personal!
The energy and the concentration which the kids engage in
the work are amazing.
And so are the results!
This is the conditions for the work: a ball of yarn and your
For us the “drawings” that was made in the
landscape by the yarn was fascinating.
The statements from the kids were equally fascinating. They
were stating different things on what they were doing. Some stated they were
doing shelters for spiders, a castle or they made zig-zag patterns. Some were trying
to do similar to what we had done before. They all came together in the
statements that they were doing something that made things nicer and they
enjoyed doing it. Everything was documented by the kids themselves.
The result that came out of today’s work with the school kids,
a group of people that normally use the vague space but under less organized
forms, were interesting both from an artistic and a research point of view. The work will continue and the next step this spring is to
engage with other groups that are using this space.

In the harsh january light the textile text appears from behind. The letters appear backwords and mirrored. We have given the vague space a front and a backside, and maybe also an inside and an outside. How can we connect this front and back and start working with the vague space as a space and not a billboard?

We thought that the heavy wind and rain would do more harm
to the installation than it has done. Instead the structure has been torn down by someone and
this effects the lower parts of the textile text.
The challenge here is to work with the feelings of disappointment
and instead include the result in the process. We can see the beauty in what
has been done and from another angle it is interesting that someone else is
adding to our work regardless their intentions.
We will leave what has been torn hanging down but rebuild
and maintain the original structure. But for a few days the letters will not be
The yarn that is hanging down will be used in further
experiments in one way or another.

The "textile text" is finally there and almost all the leaves have left the trees.

Yesterday we found that the lower parts had been torn down. These pictures shows what it looked like before and after we rebuilt it.
Next time it happens by people or by the weather...because it will happen. We will work with it as an aesthetic element in the intervention. This is part of our idea of working with maintenance as part of our process.
