Day Two: The space 05.21.10
High School Seniors Chealsia Smedley and Shayna Mell rethink space ...
A space is usually filled or occupied. A space is used for gatherings of people and storage of things. But today I learned about SPACES and how they break the bounds of a space.
When coming back to SPACES there's an overwhelming feeling of new and fresh energy. It's amazing how much things have changed, from the black vinyl letters being put on the wall, the torn down lights, and the fully separating black curtain in the back. A room that was completely empty yesterday is now filled with little paper notes and lines of black tape marking off areas. The funny thing is that we don't know if these are requests for the things written or if they are part of the display. Any avenue can be explored.
Seeing these changes and looking at booklets from other displays gives me a clue that this isn't going to be a traditional art show. The jelly splashed walls and usage of popcorn bowls from prior shows mixed with the interactive tunnel of this show means that anything can happen by tomorrow night.
