Thinking about materials
The Lab is an opportunity to test materials and to find a vocabulary ‘within’ them.
Key Words: Alchemy. Appropriation.
“We could look for things thrown away or discarded around the mac and process them.” – Karen
“I looked in nearby skips.” – Dilwara
“Exploring the MAC’s space and how my intervention impacts on the audience will be interesting and possibly challenging.” – Pauline

How is going to be tested, how will the results be disseminated, could the mac building play a role in this process?
