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 -
