What happens if? A good question that we will try to answer by trying and doing. We will work with pressure. Not outside pressure, but inside pressure. We will investigate how pressure gives shape and meaning to materials. 
For a weekend we will forget about ending up with a result and focus more on the -process and the experiment. And who knows – maybe we get inspired. Bring something you need to reshape by blowing it up or bring nothing except -yourself, your curiosity and a creative mind. A good thing to have though, is a pump that will give you pressure to work with. Any size, any type – a football pump, a small compressor, a syringe – anything.
