Proposal one: the virtual desert.

Instead of waiting until the building was done, the people who would subscribe would start interacting through the use of second life. This would give the delopers insight in the wishes of the future inhabitants, a kind of social maquette for the building. On site, a small studio would be built from which we would start developing the virtual building together with the interested participants. Students from a nearby game and development education in Amsterdam could be involved to help build the 3d world.

Proposal two: Fainting goats.

Together with the launch of the building, two so-called fainting goats would be introduced to the area. they symbolise the activity of the area, and they supply a contradictory interaction because they will actually “faint” when there is to much exitement. (a genetic defect causes the fainting goat to tense up all their muscles for a fe seconds when startled, after it will just get up again)
This will be a mini goat farm which connects the artist community and will gather publicity and visitors from outside the community. This will put the new place on the map as well as connect its inhabitants with the rest of the area.

Two proposals were greenlighted by the housing cooperation but sadly the grant for the project did not come through.
We have tried to pursue the fainting goats proposal but we had to give up due to the fact it is impossible to import native animals from the US to The Netherlands.
