Project for Summer Trip : Deadline
I intend to write daily about the progress of the project, and about the individual and collectives actions made by the artistes and resarchers who will take part of it. But I also want to make a newspaper, which could ideally be printed in every town we will cross (which means every four day before we settle in Plavec. In Plavec it would turn into a weekly Newspaper. Every participant will be invited to take part of this newspaper, either with writings or images.
The content will be of course about the different realizations of the project, but also about the places that we cross and the subjective feelings they inspire us.
