one move, 100-500 times, arranged
Following our material moves project we had to chose one of our moves and repeat it between 100 and 500 times and arrange them in whatever way we thought would be appropriate to the move.
I thought immediately ‘how awesome would it be to have a giant wall of fist-prints somewhere in school.’ So I did that, I punched and got other people to punch about 120 blocks, and arranged them like a brick wall with toothpicks holding them all together.
Everybody really liked the piece, but unfortunately, they wanted to see it somewhere else, in a location that complimented the piece more. Because of the way I’d put it together, I couldn’t just pick it up and move it or it would fall apart, so I had to take it apart, find a new location and build the whole thing again.
The second time around was much better. In order to find the wall you had to walk through the large empty room the first one was in, down a few steps into a dingy white-bricked hallway with a gray floor, and walk to the end of the hallway through a doorway into a small alcove and my new wall was in the corner. Nothing about it was new: I used the same bricks from the first wall, so they were more worn than before, broke and punched and kicked everything more, left debris on the floor and made pieces look like they were falling off. It was fun, I liked it much better, and so did the class.
