Ideas are like rabbits(1), pizza(2) and shirts(3). They are
the things that really are(4), they are more powerful than guns(5)
and they can change the world(6).
We all get ideas all of the time, they come in the shower
and on vacations, received like through a magic antenna, or just as
a part of everyday work.
But ideas are also cheap, easy and common. Without any kind
of transformation, communication or other ways of materialising
them, they are just that, ideas that no one else can see or touch
Schopenhauer wrote that as soon as you try and put a thought
into words, it ceases to be true.
If that is the case, everything is a lie but at the same
time a challenge to keep as close to the initial thought as
possible, to keep all mediation to a minimum. What is this
Here we are 18 people, all with our own ideas, and our own
way from initial thought to some kind of physical manifestation of
it. In that way, as much as this show is about great ideas, it is
also about how these ideas become tangible.
