CM Interni ’08 Postiglione

il Lunedì: 09.15 – 12.15 > aula U.1

Elaborazione di uno o più progetti individuali di recupero “in-utile” di un esistente (ma non per questo tutto vero: potrebbe essere un paesaggio immaginario): le attività  ammesse sono quelle esclusivamente di fruizione estetico-estatica, di meraviglia, di curiosità , di desiderio, di paura, ecc.; mai di uso, mai di utilità  pratica, ecc. ma senza puntare ad essere monumentali o celebrativi. Piuttosto invece bisogna puntare ad essere partecipativi e coinvolgitivi.

Elaborati finali: SUGGESTIONI (attraverso fotomontaggi, video, ecc., o parole): delivering once a week.
