Thank you to all who came out on Wednesday and Saturday, April 17 and 20, to join me at the RISD Museum’s Artists Lab.
The Archive of Desire was on display, along with maps of Providence which got covered in brilliant drawings by quite an amazing group of kids and adults, and an exhibit area on the wall for ideas as they emerged on index cards. There were also tables with supplies and instructions for contributing to the Archive, and many visitors spent a good chunk of time hanging out, working on contributions, and talking.
I was pleased to give away a big pile of new, screen-printed “Listen to the Future in 10 Minutes” kits. To all of you who took them, I hope you will keep writing your visions for the future, and send them back to the Archive.
Thanks also to Holis Mickey and Sarah Laperle, my RISD Museum hosts for inviting me, supporting me and co-hosting so perfectly.
Great conversations, inspiring ideas, beautiful drawings and about 75 new entries ready to be categorized and archived. Many of them will be uploaded shortly to archiveofdesire.tumblr.com, the place to see the growing collection of scanned cards.
