My AOB residency is now over.
I want to take this opportunity to thank Sam McDonough for her amazing vision and hard work to make this project happen; and for making a part of her artwork that of supporting other artists.
I also want to thank Michael McFadden for his support and awesomeness.
Keep an eye on: www.artboxpittsburgh.com for the 3 upcoming residencies with amazing local artists creating artwork in a neighborhood near you!
On site, I constructed and installed a total of 13 Mini Sites in the corner of 12th and Carson.
Here is a selection of stereo images of the main sites (I like using stereo pictures because they come a little bit closer to capturing the three-dimensionality of the actual pieces.)
"Paper Boat Site 1"
"Paper Boat Site 2"
"How to Fold a Paper Boat"
To get an idea of the context where these live, and to see the public's interactions and reactions, check out this last of the photo videos:
I had a truly wonderful experience working in (and out of) the box; and plan to continue hiding more miniatures in the streets of Pittsburgh.
I also have a renewed interest in furthering the dialog with the public, building community and conversation around art and its great power to...
put a smile in someone's face.
