When I walked into the Kapisanan Centre, I navigated behind the curtains to find Kristina, Darrel, and Eugene in a dimly lit space hanging metallic objects from the ceiling with metal wires. I did not know what to do, so I solemnly walked into the space and did as they were doing. I didn’t ask what they were doing, just greeted everyone with a “hello.” Everyone was focused on his or her task, which I can only assume was – to “hang stuff with metal wire.” With limited instruction on the task, I played along. We stood on chairs to hang wire from the ceiling, tugged on our wires for more tension, and wrapped wires to connect with other objects, all without verbal direction.
