I'd love help driving this project home!  Help envisioning ways to do
this would be great.

This is the web presence we've got right now:

Working with the internet group on getting something better/integrated
with the ows website. not sure the timeframe on this.

print edition: even less certain timeframe. a few weeks out, at the
very least, I'd guess.  Currently reaching out to silkscreen and
printing facilities- got some interest but nothing set yet.

I'm wondering what other avenues to share exist. If it's possible, I'd
love to see this printed in the occupy wall st. journal, as a start.
Who could I connect to to see if this can happen?

Rachel, this is beautiful!

What is the ETA on a fully-functional (as you envision) web presence? On the
printing of the work?

Do you need some sort of help in driving this project home?

Best, Todd

Hi Media folks,

I'm writing to share a project I've been working on with all of you.

I've been spearheading a flow chart version of the Declaration of the
Occupation of NYC, working with the Arts and Culuture group and the Call to
Action Working group (who wrote the initial document). I've also
crowd-edited the document in zuccotti park a bunch, trying to get it to
embody as many people's perspectives as is reasonably possible.  The idea is
to make an image that visually communicates that ows is coherent without
oversimplifying our grievances (too much).

We are planning a poster edition of this image, and a little web presence
for it where folk can zoom in and out.  I've attached the image we've come
up with (sorry the file is kinda big! it's as small as I can get it and
still be able to read all the writing), and would love to work with any of
you to spread this image to any venue you think would find it interesting.
 Let me know if you've got any ideas for it!

Thanks for reading/looking.

with contemplation and possibility,

Here's the thing:  Collecting trash is not a celebration. Waste, the
category, should not exist- but here it is. What if you started a collection
of something my students and I make art out of?

 - twisty ties - plastic twine - drink and bubble tea straws - broken
umbrellas - paper bags - small take-out containers-  rubber bands-  wiring
and broken electric cables - guitar strings - cardboard tubes - damaged
sweaters - buttons - gold foil from chocolate bars - colorful plastic bags-
other trash unique to your work -
