fanfare display

The display allows you to claim space, frame content, and publish ideas. 
The display reflects a system of thoughts: what is to be organized, exposed, published, distributed, shared? Why, how, and for whom?
The display catalyzes the research, directs the viewer, exposes the process. It shows the structures we use, the language we choose, the behaviours we embody, and the social interactions we engender. 

With an ongoing interest in the display as a publishing meditum, the modular display structure of fanfare was created together with Lotte van de Hoef in the early days of fanfare. The strucutre was a response to a lack of permanent address and effectively a necessity for adaptability in scale and function.
