COLLAB LAB 05

Ideas/ Concepts -- List One:

List One was generated via the email list a few weeks prior to our first meeting on the 19th of February 2005. Individual responses to a call for ideas was organised into the following selection by Nik Haffner. The first afternoon was devoted to lengthy discussion in smaller groups of this list; subsequently the process of making things together was the main means of exploring these ideas.
