I was a Wall

I was a Column


What now of form?

P: 7

I went to a famous wall once and saw it in all its glory with bricks and mortar and people walking around it. With the aura of history it took a stance revealing its magnificent structure. Each column was standing so still and silent and I knew nothing.

P: 3

Writing in a cafe. Well not really, just outside of it. Sitting on the terrace, like the part where there is the concrete sidewalk part. I take a stand with the wall and begin to direct my position backward.


“Our central purpose is the construction of situations, that is, the concrete construction of temporary settings of life and their transformation into a higher, passionate nature. We must develop an intervention directed by the complicated factors of two great components in perpetual integration: the material settings of life and the behaviours that it incites and that overturn it.

Our prospects for action on the environment lead, in their latest development, to the idea of a unitary urbanism. Our central purpose is the construction of situations, that is the concrete construction of temporary settings on life and their transformation into a higher passionate nature.

UNITARY URBANISM (mutter, slur, pronounce, military yell, sing)

YOU YOU becomes clear in the use of the whole of arts and techniques as means of cooperating in an integral composition on the environment.

I was like I’m going do this thing based off this essay that I read that was from a book my friend had in her studio. I came here to create an architectural complex to try this and at its core Unitary Urbanism. But then iIkind of fucked up by building these forms which is not really the way, well really it’s not about forms, so to transform these forms...

P: 4
brings me to this, this is not a form it is a situation, and not like Michael Sorrintino is the situation, these are another situation

This one is a woman crying because she suffers from contagious environmental illness and her caregiver, her husband, died (roll over onto floor)

P: 5

This sculpture is obviously a man laughing very hard because he was running around naked, for his friend’s amusement and he accidentally tripped on the woman, who is this sculpture.

Maybe someone would like to console the lady, she was tripped on (pick up column and place in front of someone)

She is crying...

and this is when we realised that this isn’t actually the beginning of a column of bricks at all.

Give someone a brick in the audience, what is your name? this is _____ (name of brick) and they have _____ (some sort of emotion, ex. a broken heart)

I digress, this is no poem, they are situations that occur behaviourally and the devouring of those experiences thirst for the soul about friendship and love,

and they will all burn in the end.

Ok I’m going to try this

“will you build me up?”

is this detournement?

would u like to join me?

do you want to detournement with me?

what do you guys think of this one?

P: 6

Is this the detournment of old forms of architecture ?

THE END

(Walk off with all the sculptures, impossible)

Deb is strong. She stands tall, taller than you and every situation you’ve ever encountered. Her body is porous, sturdy, and solid throughout. She has crevices, like you, all of which are overflowing with concrete, her skin is every pore a pebble.
