Uncle Carlos (Camacho) brought us an industrial stapler to help us with the installation. Before going away, he cheerfully told us about his colleague, to whom he once had to remove one of those heavy-duty staples out of his thumb, which was bleeding like a fountain.
For the rest of the day, the discussion about how to hang two huge 6 meters wide sailcloth screens [the support material for Rodrigo's piece 'Taxonomy'] against the walls kept balancing between whether we should use nails or cables.
After various collectively clumsy and hence void attempts, and once everyone else went to sleep, Rodrigo hand-built this counterweighted leverage system, which included 18 folding chairs taped in pairs, and, alone, he hoisted one of the screens up to the 2.5m mark. A process which easily took him until the morning hours.
