We are at a crossroads is a hosted experience that triggers our perception of the everyday through cyclical performances of interaction between objects and participants.
Our daily routines are embedded in cycles: the natural ones we are forced to live by, and those we create for ourselves. These repetitive cycles make us perform actions thoughtlessly because they have become so ingrained in our behaviour. The everyday becomes part of our character.
We are at a crossroads brings this system of cycles and its invisible traces to light in a performative installation. A collection of handmade objects and a set of parameters creates a dedicated space where participants will create traces on a surface of wet clay and erase them partially. Through a continuous enactment of these cycles the surface constantly changes and evolves, as a testimony of time passing in our everyday.
