Common Ground

Title

Common Ground

Description

Common Ground was an interactive installation about community as a shared experience along personal journeys. For this show and art event, they created a space where people crossed paths, shared stories, and made souvenir books to remember it by. The artists were interested in inviting viewers to participate as collaborators, the intimacy of physically touching the artwork, the temporality of moving through a space, the de-commodification of art, and the creation of a personal object/personal event.
