In order to save your favorite festival events and create your own festival calendar, you need to register.
We will invite you to reflect on your experiences during the pandemic. As we collectively emerge from the past 18 months, what are you feeling? What emotions are guiding your actions? Are you harboring emotions that you would like to set free?
This activity — reflection and contemplation, documentation, creation, and release — mimic those of a thoughtful design process. As architects, we follow a similar procedure: assess/analyze, document, create, and finally, we let go of our creations. Ultimately the things we design and create are for the enjoyment and use of others. As we see it, the model boat pond will temporarily become a symbolic representation of our participants’ creations living a life beyond the creator. Together, the boats bobbing in the breeze will be a representation of the many participants – each an individual contributing to the greater whole.
Taken together, this installation will be an expression of the collective consciousness. How might we utilize a design process to live a life of intention and set the emotions that are no longer serving us free?
