As of 4:30pm, 281 people have visited the gallery today. That’s as many as typically come to an opening.
The game brings them out; the competition brings them out; and how will we begin to describe what the tournament, as medium, is actually doing, actually mediating? A facilities person came to the house today to help us with a water issue: a flooded laundry room! And I asked him, “have you played your game?” He smiled and said, no, but that he would before Sunday. He talked about community, interested in how and whether his co-workers are really part of Haverford, in the tournament as a “thing,” a thing he found himself talking about. Often. How to record all of these thoughts and experiences?
