When is a place suitable for usage and when not? When do you provide an addition or disrupt a place with an operation performed by you? When can we speak of using or abusing?
Sid Dankers and I started this project with the intention to respond to each other and the natural envorinment of Baraque Michel in a performative way. However, severe and unpredictable weather conditions did not allow this to happen. We were challenged by nature and its aesthetics and began to notice the environment speaking for itself on a theatrical level. The envorinment was no longer a place to respond to, but became a key part of our questions about usership.
