Some first impressions of a drifters space

Six people`s very personal traveldiaries  came back to me. Beautyfully filled with thoughts, answers, drawings ( and even more questions) about nomadic lifestyles. Taken from that first hand input of the six difters I created an audiovisual installation in space: a driftersspace.  Three nomads have a talk about their experiences, perceptions of their surroundings and challenges of a way of life that triggers uncomfortable questions. And after all, the big questions: what they expect from life, people and society.

The installation was shown to the masters exhibition of scenographystudents at TU Berlin in July 2013.


Dear drifters: Thanks to all your commitment  to the project, everything you shared and gave. I enjoyed a lot getting to know to you in that way.  Some of you I met on the way, some of you I hopefully will meet in the future. One of your fellow nomads sponsored some wood for the installation and even recorded one of the audioparts. I couldn`t imagine a better way. That was a great things Pierce, thanks!
One of you asked me to sent the filled notebook to a familymember that should get to know about his lifestyle better.

One of you send me some beautyful jewellry from his own nomadic silversmithstudio.
Thanks so much!

Soon I`m gonna upload some videos and the audiofile here, for a better impression of the space.

The NOMADIC NOTEBOOK is looking for new companions!


tripple

we´re the creators of the spaces around  us and give them meaning . . . do you think so too?
Who´s willing to try out something new ?

Hi Nomads,
currently I plan a project about nomadic lifestyles. As a scenographer and social person I´m interested in  spaceshaping practices, the aquisition through communication, personal ideals/philosophies, practicalities  and how all this influences the process of spaceshaping, socially as well as physically.
You can read more about it above in “The project & I “
My method of investigation is of a  playfull type that is highly process-oriented.

For this I´d like YOU to participate!

How it works?

easygoing + fun
1. You´ll get the superlight & tiny DIY„NOMADIC NOTEBOOK“ that you´ll carry for some time.
A postbox of your choice will be fed with it!
2. You´ll receive mail with little questions, tasks/experiments in regular timeintervals
3. I will generate drawings, possibly a little book and installation from your output in July
4. Also I´d like to accompany 1 or 2 people somewhere in europe, to interview, draw and film a little
I´ll reward you with a little something and your personal experience. Of course your privacy is highly respected. You only give what you want to give!

I´m really looking foreward to get to know you.
Your comments, questions and input are very appreciated!
Just mail/ call/ come to visit me!
Friedel Fink
