Great news – our concept, of Walking Backward to the Future, was accepted by the Dutch Design Week‘s committee! I presented both Summ()n and the concept yesterday, and it was very well received by both main project manager of DDW and one of their curators. They were ‘slightly’ concerned with the size of the installation – first, because they were afraid we wouldn’t be able to ‘summon’ it in time, but more importantly – because they didn’t have any more space left in the main building of the event (so called Klokgebouw).
But they loved the concept and wanted to have it at the DDW, so they invited us to come today again, and think about a. perhaps a slightly simplified version of the installation, and b. possibility to place it in the exit area of the building. The last options is really worth to explore, in that case the WBF will be the *very last* impression of the visitors, a great chance to place it deep into their memories.
So, today we met and were finally accepted into the show; the exact location and shape of the installation is still to be decided later, but in principle the deal is done!
