background info

Group 'Dream on!'
The car park of the supermarket will be our playground - we gave up the idea of the swimming pool. We'll be using the trolleys as the module. Given that we can only work on the actual place after 7pm, we're currently doing tests using sliced plastic cups which represent the trolleys. After having thought a bit about what to write, we ended up choosing DREAM, which contains nice letters and is related to the place itself: the supermarket. Dreams often occure from dusk till dawn, that's also when we'll be working on the project in the car park. We're currently doing type design tests and will go to the park tonight. aight.

Group 'Read on!'
Today we gave up the idea with the balloons. We will use the books to write our message. We were lucky to get 300 book with the same edition. We have explored some construction possibilities today and will use the white slice of the book to draw the letters - to be observed from the top. We are looking to do the lettering in a neigboring jail yard, but at the moment we don't know if we're allowed to do it there. We'll see.
