Conference call general summary
The group conference-called with John Bela and Blaine Merker on Friday March 6. I'll be posting the transcript of the call on Monday. In general, it was decided that this coming week everyone would visit public spaces on campus to discover how spaces are used and how people interact in them. Take photos of possible sites for intervention, perhaps interview people about use of that space. Think about how a team of 3 to 5 might intervene to design ways for the public to experience improved interaction with the space. Sites are what you'll target for now, and possible materials needed for an intervention. Emphasis is placed on recycled and recyclable materials for projects. Goal by the end of the week is to list possible materials that need to be acquired to make the work. Later in the week, we'll discuss breaking into teams for perhaps 3 different sites.
