At some point I realized my problem was I had no time to make art. Also, I had almost no money. A tiny voice in my intuition told me that it was up to me to make art despite these obstacles. The result is a series of collaborations I call Walkshops. Each Walkshop starts when one or more people start walking around and it ends when they have interacted or intervened in thier surroundings in some way. A photo is then taken to document the process.
For this Walkshop, Erica and I first talked over coffee and the conversation turned to a building in her neighborhood that she is interested in. She has researched it and thought a lot about it. The question of what buildings are and how we interact with buildings and how buildings interact with the neighborhood around them. In what ways can you interact with a building? Other than taking up space, how do buildings interact with the public around them? Naturally, we went around and "shook the hand" of several buildings around us to interact with them. This was an easy way we could see interacting with an interesting building.
