Tents

as mobile ves­sels rep­re­sent jour­ney, migra­tion, dis­lodge­ment, shel­ter. As triv­ial mass prod­ucts for wan­der­lust or high-tech bivouacs for adven­ture, tents serve mod­ern trends from idle lea­sure to extreme activ­i­ty. As seri­ous hous­es, tents call to mind the tra­di­tion­al home of the nomads. As a sportive ref­er­ence, we con­sid­er the roman­ti­cism of the mod­ern nomad, surf­ing the web on an onmidi­rec­tion­al vir­tu­al jour­ney, con­stant­ly arriv­ing some­where while sit­ting still.

Small tents are feath­er light homes. Their sown con­struc­tion com­pares to clothes, where­as their spa­tial vol­ume com­pares to build­ings. Tents are more light­weight than build­ings but big­ger than clothes. They have a man­age­able build­ing size, are soft, inof­fen­sive, cheap, trans­portable. Their aggre­gate con­di­tion pro­vides expan­sion and com­pact­ing prop­er­ties. Tents are the raw mate­r­i­al for 1:1 works — almost like paint is for a pic­ture.
