Collaboration with Emilie Desnoyer / Workshop under the guidance of Mischer'Traxler in Boisbuchet, France
 
Three random things from our nearest surrounding where chosen - leaf, bicycle chain and a stone.
We decided to try to define these three things for all the senses, and use substitutes for the interpretation, either natural objects or artificial. 
 
We set up one table for each of the three things. Then the participants would walk along the tables and follow instructions on how to interact with the things there, knowing that they were trying to figure out what was in the box at the end of the table. This way the participants used their whole sense system to try to experience one item that they would usually never pay so much attention to.
