opening day, morning. still a lot to do. The interactive installation including all the sounds and visuals we collected has to be finished. this will be an interesting challenge. the rest is looking wonderful in the beautiful exhibition space. it was a long day yesterday, but we had so much help, that everything went more or less easy. Everybody came to install his own objects. now the space works like an imaginary landscape while all the objects are carrying their special memories –
ok, it was adventurous to install the lights. at the end Imam called his father, who came with a long ladder to help. super people. and late at night we had our own little party in the installation. laura brought some fried chicken and chips and we had juices and beer – and martin had some palestinian music in the laptop. there were Imam, Azzam, Laura, a technical assistant, Meike Jansen, Martin, Martin and me. last song was the Ramallah-song, and the palestinian friends showed us, how they dance it. i was happy with this unofficial opening. the work still pure and in a way privat – now we have to go to finish and start the official thing.
