my original statement read as follows:
I communicate best when I sit and feel comfortable with people, thus the idea of a ‘Tertulia’ came to mind.
- The word Tertulia means small social gathering in Spanish.
- The goal for the project is to become myself a ‘Communicator’ and design a ‘Tertulia kit’. This will enable me to create a Tertulia, anywhere I please.
- I have two weeks, an internal frame back pack, and a cooler for beer, Wine, and crackers, but no chairs, So I will focus on the chairs.
- Their form will derive from the metal curved rods inside my pack.
The chairs are meant to be carried as a snowboard on the pack’s snowboard/shovel pocket in the back. (brief from 2000)
