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 hands.
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.
