Musement Berlin
Musement, a group of US-based cultural instigators, together with a network of Berlin-based artists, collectives, and organizations (including Agustina Woodgate), are imagining Kulturbahn, an interactive, integrated ride through Spreepark’s landscape of memories, ideologies, systems, and sensations.

786 Numbers
in collaboration with Primary Flight
This site-specific street installation is inspired by the ancient popular street game, except this one is hundreds of numbers long. The original hopscotch courts were over 100 feet long. Roman foot soldiers ran the course in full armor and field packs, and it was thought that Hopscotch would improve their foot work. Roman children imitated the soldiers by drawing their own boards, and creating a scoring system, and "Hopscotch" spread through Europe, Asia, and quickly across the globe.

Stuffed Animal skins
16 ft x 9.5 ft
Hand-sewn and designed rugs made from recycled stuffed animals skins. The process starts with the departure of the loving life objects have when they are in the hands of their owners.The rugs not only reference the personal histories of the toy's owners, but investigate the rug as an object organizing and displaying memories and lineages.
