Basale behov (Basic needs)

 

Rum46, Århus, DK, 2005

In a poetic yet functional way this project aimed to make noticeable something otherwise invisible. The intention of BASIC NEEDS was to offer the participants a possibility of communicating one, or several, basic needs to the surrounding world.

BASIC NEEDS invited people to create a key ring from a range of colourful symbols. Each symbol represented a personal need as for example ‘respect’, ‘excitement’, ‘exchange’ and ‘love’ The symbol was to be noticeable worn. Further all participants were offered a review for the use of reading other participants needs. During the exhibition a similar review was announced on posters in public space of Århus.
