"...When I lived in Holland I tried to make a medialab. I find the idea of a
medialab connected to a fixed place is a bit archaic, a bit dated.
Personally, I don't want to criticise other forms of practice in medialabs,
but I'm very interested in transitory situations. I'm interested in creating
multi-use areas that are quick and temporarily autonomous. In creating a
transitory situation like "let's do something quick, in on week", you must
not worry about the problem of being continuously eco-friendly or about
long-term issues. For example, in the 80's there were many initiatives, now
they have stopped and they keep sucking up locations, money and oxygen. I've
seen a lot of situations like these and they bore me, as well as being a
complete waste. I believe that to create temporarily autonomous situations
is more exciting. It's a way to use the best elements of existing
organisations, to take portions of them, configure them and make the next
step...".

Derek Holzter, from "Sommercamp+Workstation. Temporary autonomous culture"
