The workshop will introduce some of the projects of Lorenzo Sandoval related to the production of space as an editable site of narration, and the possibilities it brings for negotiating stories though objects, words and writing beyond writing. The workshop will introduce the projects “Office Party”, “A Soft Tragedy”, “The Institute for Endotic Research” and “Shadow Writing (Fábrica Colectiva)” in order to approach few different strategies of storytelling in common. As a practical output, an exercise based on the use of constraints will be proposed, inspired by the French group Oulipo.
