RESEARCHING THE USE OF
USELESSNESS DURING COVID19
In a world where people give themselves right of existence by being useful, the question raised up. Can people be useful bye being useless, and does uselessness exist?
With an artist in residence at Cultureland we started ‘Coming Soon’. A serie of public exhibitions that comments on the world on hold, displayed in the Cultureland storefront during the summer of 2020. Together with Social Designer Fides Lapidaire we created two waiting rooms where our visitors could experience the use uselessness. Using the windows as a visual tool to experiment, rather than to display. With this time out zone we created a space to not only see the world move along, but also a place to put yourself on hold. We captured our visitors thoughts and their interpretation resulting in an audio archive as our creative output.
