Happening・Don't Just Sit There - Amble

Orientation in and occupation of a public space. Exploring what it means to be a tourist.

What do we bring...what do we take?
Are we active or passive, consuming or consumed by our senses?
Taking in the views or taking down the chips....?

As we improvised in and around Amble, an impromptu audience formed. Clutching their ice creams they unwittingly created their own cinema like viewing experience watching us from their seats through the glass panes of the ice cream parlour.

Two small boys on bikes asked: "What are you doing? Can we join in?.....we’ve never seen this before” 

What are you doing? Can we join in? We’ve never seen this before.......
