Vessel: a hollow container; a buoyant volume; a person embodying a certain quality, charting a journey or activity. To carry, to conduct or convey, to hold, to honour… how many ways do we act as vessels for one another? This new project begins as a creative development, between a media performance artist, a community architect, and a dancer/traceur. It is open to the participation of local people in Melaka, and the collaboration of other MAPfest artists. Our intention is to develop a mapping process by using everyday materials found in the Old Town, and the kinds of vessels that might carry them. These will be gathered, mapped and reconstructed using movement expression, art and design.
