FYI Grant

Recently I, with a group of 3 other students, have been awarded a First Year Interdisciplinary Grant from Syracuse University. Our proposal was entitled, "A Sense of Place". Our project involves collecting thoughts, feelings, meanings and memories of specific public spaces and putting them on display, as a way for the space itself to "talk back". In doing this, we are striving to create a dialogue between the space an its occupants.

One of my roles in the project will be the creation of the visuals used in to assist in collecting people's reactions to certain spaces, as well as the later exhibition that will be created around this information. More information will be provided as the project progresses.

Congrats!! This sounds pretty awesome :) If you need any text to back up your work, check out the series, "Documents of Contemporary Art." We're reading 8 of these books in the Performance Art class I'm taking this semester and they are fantastic! They are books of short essays (emphasis on short - yeah!), and there's several of them that would pertain to what you're doing.
