PROPOSAL: Kirjasto projekti

Proposed by agryfp
Description:

There could be a table or a shelf ascribed with 'Kirjasto projekti', with the hope that it can serve as a/the Temporary library for participants in experiments and Open Day visitors.

According to self-defined lengths of time, someone can present their personal books (or library books) on the table to relate to current or speculative activity in Temporary space. The person who puts the books on the table indicates who put them there, for how long they will be present, via temporary signage for example on a sheet of paper or cardboard. They are responsible after the designated to pack up and take the books away. It is by design a temporary library.

No books should be removed from the project space for the duration of the Kirjasto projekti. Anyone who leaves books on the table does so at their own risk of damage or disappearance. Ideally all Temporary participants know how to look after other people's books.

Andrew will help facilitate the process as best as he can, whether he is in Helsinki or not. I

BUT big but, there is a need to make a shelf in Temporary space to hold books first. I pledge 50 temps to the first person to make a stable shelf that can hold a row of 8-10 books safely on the wall.

Status changed to: Invalid

So, after months of this proposal sitting here and no one being sure what to do with it, we are marking it as 'invalid'. Experiments at Temporary, currently, are meant as ephemeral events to bring people together for a directed experience. This is a lovely idea, but we couldn't figure out how to make sense of it in that framework, so apologies for the invalidity (all pledges will be withdrawn and restored to your balances).

We hope to launch a new type of proposal - something like 'Services' (hopefully a better name will come soon). Services will be for proposals like this - ideas that do not require time block out on the calendar but can be set up as ongoing processes. Over the coming weeks there will be some discussions on the Tuesday night meetings as to how this could work in terms of Temps usage, organising, and the physical limits of space. All Temporary users are welcome to attend these meetings to help shape what Temporary can become.
