Building in the Post-Apocalypse

2009 /
Exhibition at the MK Gallery at Portland State University. The exhibition explores thoughts and visions for rethinking education through community and collaborative learning in a world of skyrocketing tuition and rising unemployment.

The gallery was divided into two spaces. The first was a classroom space where free and alternative educational exercises took place. I invited Public Social University to host an Apocalypse class.

I led a public exercise called the Morphology Chart. The exercise gets people to place subjective interpretations onto random objects, create meaning where there may have been none.
The second room was the beerandscifi room (inspired by a blog I kept at beerandscifi.com). The room challenged students to think slightly less formally about education, encouraging PSU students to skip their classes, watch movies, drink beer together, and hang out.
