"Let's do a pilsner"
So, the Bewegung crew finally took the step into the physical realm by making a table, a process that made us fully realize the pure joy of being bricoleurs. The assembly of this schizophrenic (in the sense of being enriched with loose associations) artifact was made possible by an old dresser, a generously used IKEA office-chair, miscellaneous small metallic objects and mirrors donated by a dear old grandma, and a bundle of intuitively bought objects from a local @bauhaussverige. Among the Bahausian objects the most significant was that of the green synthetic grass-mat as we came in to the process with a underlying thought of "we want to do something with a synthetic grass-mat". We were also enchanted by the thought of mirrors in close connection to said mat. With this as our starting points we started working with naive, child-like, enthusiasm, letting the process itself be the key. We were only interested in continuation of working (perpetual creation being a staple theme of Bewegung), with the full belief that the object would present itself to us when done with a clear message of "it's done" or rather "I'm done". When this occured we sat down and "did a pilsner" (using the finished object as a table for putting said pilsner on). With huge grins on our faces we absorbed the finished artifact - naively joyous bricoleurs. At that precise, drawn-out, what-have-we-done?-moment: content with existence.
