Alone or in groups, we will make models for a site-specific public art project.
Celebrate, draw attention to, or critique the site. What inherent values does the site have? What is its history? Is there something about it that is threatened? Is there something undervalued you’d like to call attention to? Any or all of these should be considered. Will there be an interactive component? Will it be ephemeral? What materials will be used?
Step one: Make sketches & conceptual written plans
Step two: Make scale models & budgets, in hopes of convincing the rest of us it is realistic to make & valuable
Feel free to have a utopian vision...
