Budapest, May 2006
This week at Millenaris Park in Budapest was an excursion into the protected cultural venue in front of the House of Future – surrounded by flourishing trees, ponds and lawns and a relaxed audience. Many of the projects used the city as a stage: The Miss Europe public investigation took place mainly at Moskva Ter, and the GPS workshop sent out participants in different regions of the cities. The theremin show was performed right next to the studios at the open air auditoriom of Millenaris Park, with a full moon guarding the scene.
