KINETIC KAUCHII DEKOSOFA
ARTIST: FORMSTONE CASTLE COLLECTIVE
LOCATION: ROAMING THROUGHOUT BLINK
The Kinetic Kauchii DekoSofa will tavel around BLINK, coming to people where they are. Piloting the couch will be one rider—part performance artist, part safety officer, the pilot will be a mysterious guide through BLINK, controlling the speed and steering. Up to two guests guests at a time can fully participate in the DekoSofa experience by riding along.
ABOUT FORMSTONE CASTLE COLLECTIVE
We are a small team based out of Upper Fells Point, Baltimore, bringing together the enthusiasm and diverse skillsets of the Couchsurfing community, along with creativity of the Burner community and the mechanical resources of the Bike community. The projects created here have been developed for and brought to festivals like Freeform, but others have simply been made for
the joy of creation and to see what we could build.
We believe that the creation of community by bringing people together through unexpected, joyful connections is a powerful avenue for social change. The DekoSofa brings the whole living room outside and roams BLINK, questioning assumptions of what it means to be“at home” in the city, and what it means to be “neighbors” vs “strangers”.
