Prisma Pavillion is an independently free-standing structure whose limits invite transparency– its glass shapes are complicated by some opaque bricked areas that resist this invitation. Inside the place, there is another architectural shape of brick fueled by burning logs. It dispenses things that taste better after they’re heated and are sold by men for many hours of the day by the canal.
Prisma Pavillion is also the name given to a gathering of invited people who together have and will also generate; like a social oven, an independent yet complicated structure right nearby.
Most of the invited people have been involved in various performances from Gerry Bibby over the last few years, as well as those who have invited him to participate in their own structures. The nature of this gathering is a sort of productive sociality rather than merely a collection of acquaintances.
