In a month, Fabrica will have a big show at the Pompidou Centre in Paris. This feature will be a sort of diary about the journey from Treviso to Paris. This is my first post for the Fabrica Blog, yet I have been a Fabricante for almost a year… never to late to start. Now I will tell you the tales of the show, the people involved, the mishaps, the gossip, basically anything I hear about the show and the building of it, I will share. This is day one and only the beginning, so today I will explain the contents of the feature. Here, I will introduce the projects involved and the people that create them, also my own personal experience with the show, as I am part of one project… you get the point.
The Fabrica at Pompidou Centre show will happen in a month and the postings here will be your preview to the show. Hope you enjoy. The show will happen and it will be big.
Yesterday and the day before, I did a couple of interviews for the show. I can’t really talk about them now, as the project is directed under some sort of secrecy. Sometimes I don’t even know what’s happening the next day. But what I can say is that the interviews took place in Milan and Florence, I interviewed an economist and an ecofeminist-political activist. I will talk more about the interviews and the project in some days; but now I will tell you about driving through Italy. Driving around Tuscany we found an artificial lake, we stopped on the side of the road. I had no swimsuit, so I didn’t swim but Giuglio (Camera wonder kid) and Greg (project director) did. I read a book. The whole scenario made me wonder, in my country, Mexico, you never stop at a lake for a quick swim, lakes are polluted and nasty, and here they welcome you with topless sunbathers and clean water. It was nice. After a great afternoon, traffic. Argh! Longest trip, we ate like trillions of gas station sandwiches, I have to say my favorite is the Buffalino sandwich at Autogrill. It rocks.
That’s all for now. Stay tuned.
