(to connect)

to connect is the project brief- Sancho and I are trying to re-ruin the ruin, to push it outside of a mediated institutional frame by creating the appearance of chaos, of abandonment, of a project diverted, delayed or forgotton, a site of building/unbuilding (Smithson´s Hotel Palenque?) But how to do this so that the result reaches beyond the frame of installation, of a public experience which is not only visual. Connect to development sprawl at top of hill?

I wonder... how exactly will you push the ruin outside the mediated institution? I was thinking that one way to do it would be to de-institutionalize the institution. Or else, who knows, maybe you manage to unmediate the institution and find a way to ruin it too. For sure, you could haul the whole ruin out from the mediated institution, but that would be too expensive. Or you could bomb the institution - that would create an appearance of chaos without much work!
