Notes

We need to show something funny and entertaining. Some people will found it insulting. But they can response to it by showing something that they think is funny.

Not political all the time

Public space, library
What people are doing in public space.. Street party.

Open planning.
Starting point but not end point.
Progressing conversation constantly about a subject.
Loose connections to the next clip.

Funny Clip. Not always funny for everyone

Inspired by Fan-generated clips.

Subtitles. transference of culture from somewhere else.
Evening out of cultural wars.
