Milwaukee All Stars report 1.

posted at 22:11 GMT by M.River in /news/mriver

At the entrance to a lecture hall at the University Wisconsin Milwaukee, we stationed a table, a ream of plain, 8 1/2 x 11 printer paper, some markers and two student volunteers. As people entered the hall, each person was asked to draw a star on a sheet of paper.

We were asked to present our work but we decided that wed incorporate a small performance as well. So, at the end of our presentation, which focused on some of our recent vote-driven projects, we transitioned from a lecture into an artwork we called Milwaukee All Stars.


We explained that we would make a new work using the stars drawn by the audience. The ‘how’ of how this piece would be created was left to vote by the audience.


After reading the 10 ideas on how the drawings could be worked with, we opened the floor up to an pro/ con debate on the options. At the end of the town hall style debate, we placed the options up for vote by show of hands.

The Milwaukee All Stars output method selected by vote is #10 - pulp all stars, make 1 sheet of paper from the pulp, draw 1 star on it.

Sometime in 2011, MTAA will present the next phase of this project. permanent link to this post
