This workshop is an homage to my favourite poster by Yvon van Versendaal, made ten years ago. She was fascinated by a simple circle pattern on a plastic bag which we found on a trip we made together to Barcelona and translated it to a silkscreen print.
The goal is to connect as many completed sets as possible.
Every player draws a small circle somewhere on the paper.
Tasks Performed Every Turn Hereafter by Each ParticipantFirst, draw a big circle and try to encircle small circles with it.
General Rules (see diagram)
A set is a big circle of one colour containing three small circles [members] of the three remaining colours.
A set may not contain twice the same colour.
The diameter of the big circles should be between 5-10 cm, the small circles between 1-2 cm.
A small circle has to be member of two sets.
At maximum only two sets may intersect on one location (see diagram: wrong- and right intersection).
Complete Sets:A complete set means, all its members are members of another set as well, a set is then intersecting three other sets.
Edo: A session based on folding the paper. We used a set of formal rules which forced quite strict limitations on us four, but still left a few degrees of free choice. Enough to make us very interdependent: We had to discuss and coorporate.
