  家作坊系列一号:08奥运 HomeShop Series No. 1: GAMES '08
situated activities, interventions and daily recordings
家作坊 HomeShop; Beijing, 2008

HomeShop initiated its first project series in August of 2008 during the Beijing Summer Olympics. For the Games 2008 series, the framework of Beijing and the Olympic games was used as a grid from which to allow indeterminacies to converge and reappear――a way of building common spaces from the urban environment and community practice. Located in a small hutong near the Gulou area of the city, each day of the Olympics marked a countdown to the events' end, as opposed to the nation-wide arousal of public displays of the countdown to 08.08.08. Varying scales of activities took place, from field recordings to a party in honour of the "losers", from street-side viewings of the Games to impromptu stoop-front discussions with a neighbour. A secondhand clothing collection station invited curious passersby to come in and interact with the space, and free giveaways from participating artists LIANG Yue ("Relax" posters) and Sean SMITH (a Wii video game race to win Olympic event tickets) aimed at offering, within the daily routes of local residents, a minor-scale potentiality for our ways of engaging with the community and public space.
