A display board serves as a persuasive occasion for rehearsing a useful fiction. Every day, for 100 days, the board unveils a new activity to be performed, to find out what our relationship with the world might be under the special conditions of an instruction. These instructions are inspired by the precarious conditions we live in, and by those who experience precarity in profound ways. Some activities involve multiple people, but occasionally they are solitary acts, to be carried out without an audience. Every piece of useful fiction intends to produce a spontaneous choreography for the everyday, an alternative momentum, a velocity to rehearse a different temper for our times.
