The Emergence Room starts as an almost empty space. Only a few things are installed: they invite visitors to spend some time there. Time with Arachne, the artist from greek mythology. Some instructions and motivations suggest activities, other material unfolds stories and myths. All deal with spinning, knitting, knotting, and weaving: creating texture.
The activities are spread over a large period of time (up to 3 months), so the suggestion of working together is never in the spirit of creating a collective "us" that constructs an artwork together. The EMERGENCE ROOM instead facilitates the coming together of many voices, many activities, many different people: working in a communtiy of strangers.
