Meeting with Paul

Paul talked about the inherent futility in the drawing of lines in the sand.  We talked about how drawing the lines in public incorporates and element of risk - one never knows how the public will react.  Paul loved the fact that the guard on the beach just came up and drove over the lines at Oxbow.

We talked about what the exhibit will be: monument, ritual.

Think about:
What is show?
What does show?

Make a funtionality list from potential functions of the room.  I can change what I do.  I can schedule what I do.
  • Change how I work on the lines - gesture
  • Panel discussions
  • rituals
  • cermonies
  • headquarters for fundraising
  • switch up objecthood and performativity and participation
