How Many Chairs to Build The Future?

Hamish MacPherson

How Many Chairs to Build the Future? sits somewhere between choreography, sculpture, conversation and play. A simple set of rules turns 50 chairs into an environment for people of all ages to think and talk about big ideas in simple, physical ways.

Hamish MacPherson was an artist-researcher interested in the cross-overs between movement, choreography and philosophy. His work often involved setting up ‘relational structures’ (strange rules or games for example) that can be used for people to learn, make-performances or spend time together in other ways.
