Within the framework for KAC workshops take place continually with local players in Kista and guest participants; inhabitants, associations, companies, organizations and institutions. A focal point is a semitransparent mobile building which is placed at various public sites in Kista. The building is a dynamic model of KAC, and at the same time a living interface for the project with references to contemporary art, painting, architecture and social theory. The workshops are open to anyone who is interested, via invitations and advertisement on the project’s website. The object is to define, together with the participants, the institution and its role in relation to the site. For each workshop a specific manual is created, depending on the subject and the context. The manual is a departure point that indicates the theme but also gives the participants individual freedom. Visualization of the discussion and the workshop takes place directly on the building’s semitransparent walls; which literally form “canvases”, “sculptures” and “”structural components”. The building is thereby a living description of the project’s objective to create a common meeting place.
One advantage is that the discussion takes place not only between artists, students, architects and experts – also residents, associations, managers, companies and institutions are invited to participate. The process can be described as a deliberative discussion, which is communicated for immediate interaction.
The building’s modules are derived from a theoretical model of society which has been directly translated into a frame covered by a semitransparent layer. The construction system allows for varied combinations of the modules depending on the purpose and context: sometimes the modules form a wall, a corner, a house or a sculptural structure. The semitransparent surface makes possible visualizations in the form of drawings, paintings and projections.
