01:39:08 deirdre amirault morris, Ogaa Po'ogeh: The history of the cassiopeia constellation conversation: It began in 2018 with a series of proposals in our group residency at IDOCDE in Vienna at Impulstanz. It was Melina, Defne, Patrick, Victoria, & Deirdre. Our group focused a bit on storytelling and ways to tell/share/produce stories..

01:39:09 Susan Sentler: Through the conversation, the shaping of the space became more round, more circular

01:40:17 deirdre amirault morris, Ogaa Po'ogeh: Share them as you can Ezter, we will be placing them as they arrive. So it is ok if they arrive after we begin placing.
