::: Experimenting Cities
"Try to fit in a city, try to live in a city, try to find the best city where to live, to leave, to go, to find something, anything..."
Mathilde Maillard & Colyne Morange impulsed this "in situ" project in January 2009, during a living residency in Berlin.
This project is performative and multiform. It is a long term research, developed in varying cities and through many steps.
This is an invitation to explore a city through a 10 rules 's list, more or less absurd, to interpret and fulfill with a first or fourtiest degree.
This is an everyday experimentation, a urban research, that generates diferent kind of material and artistic forms: photographs, videos, happenings, soundtracks, texts, etc.
It is possible to follow its diferent steps via a webblog.
