Amsterdams Zwart

May 22nd, 2015

The purpose of Amsterdams Zwart is to create a living environment in which groups of people are  challenged and kept busy by drawing each other on layers of recycled paper tiles. Amsterdam Black, a name derived from Delft Blue is a project designed to make us question existing habits on how we live and work and relate to privacy, with the intent to share ideas, stimulate group thinking and contribute to mutual storytelling over the course of a week or more in an offline environment. Write, talk, draw and create a cave-like collage of thoughts and experiences.
