Landed in Doha at VCU Qatar for the extraordinary week of Tasmeem 3ajeeb, together with other extraordinary people to make workshops and lectures, all linked by the ajeeb theme “strange in a strange way, cool in a cool way, and slightly weird in a slightly weird way”.
We arrived with 200 pink swim rings + 850 meters of white tape to create Floating Architecture, a bigger and pink version of the installation made in 2010 for AILATI at the Venice Biennale, a space to stay, to interact with, or a strange pink monster to place in the University.
On Sunday the 8th of march we start brainstorming with the students, searching for the best way to make a physical model of this modular and organic architecture, we opt for a form in between a tent and a manta…
Third day: we start to hang the installation in the main atrium, while a group of students inflate the 200 rings.
And finally the opening on Thursday:
A great photo opportunity for everybody!
that spreads in the social medias immediatly
Last day, after the opening, we leave for a desert trip, bringing with us some inflatables…
Ready to float on the sand dunes?
And finally, some rings survived for do what they have been made for:
It was a fantastic 3ajeeb week, and if you pass from Doha, the pink monster should be still there.
