vitrine proposal: caretaker aude thensiau
the caretaker is the one taking care: not only of the vitrine, opening up in the morning, putting on the coffee, setting up the space. but aude is also the one inviting the passers-by, the first commuters in for a cup of coffee, or a cookie. drink me, eat me.
the caretaker is a tentative exercise in intimacy. carefully scanning the other's inhibitions. the gift is there for the taking, not necessarily to be reciprocated. but a story can be given, possibly the story of the previous day's visitor. throughout the week the caretaker collects encounters and stories, creating links between them, spreading them out throughout the different visitor's experiences.
