Silent Objects

Urban archaeology for an instant museum of unorthodox objects.

Silent objects is a blind workshop and a challenge.
Participants are invited to wander around remnants of traditional commercial activities and spaces in downtown Porto.

A series of objects without any particular background information will be gathered.
How do people interpret and respond to objects devoid of any contextual information?
What stories can be imagined?
What would one like to know about these objects?
How can they address commerce and societal change?
