Light coming from two sides, a warm, high-ceilinged and open room. 
An ocean of chairs in front of me.
And another one, this one wrapped in hot pink thread, right next. Hosting 9 donated personal objects - While Making It Together. 
As I was one of the first-morning presenters, a reduced and generous audience.
A fantastic panel: Katharine Herron (Westminster), Vivian Mitsogianni (RMIT) João Barbosa Sequeira (Lisbon), Claus Peder Pedersen (Aarhus), Arnaud Hendrickx (KU Leuven) and Dimitri Vangrunderbeek (KU Leuven LUCA), chaired by Johan Verbeke (KU Leuven).

I chose to, inspired by Hans Ulrich Obrist, interview WMIT. And, while I wished to learn from her: meaning, tacit knowledge, intentions and connections to the rest of my practice, I ended up being the interviewed one.
This methodology was well received and got encouraged to be explored further, as method for practice-based research.
