“Meeting Cards” are a play off of traditional Greeting cards given out to strangers, offering compliments, thank you’s, and random notes of good fortune. People who receive Meeting Cards are given the tumblr.com blog address, and are welcome to post their replies to their cards. Anything works - webcam video, a picture from your cell phone, a written post, or whatever you feel like.

Stop by to see what derives from a collaboration between myself, Megon Holldorf, and Angie Meyer.
Beginning today and throughout the week our installation will be up in room 418 in the 623 S. Wabash building.
After asking various individuals to “give up” objects they feel they could not live without, sacks were constructed to hold the received items. The collection of objects combined with the power of gravity comments about the influence of the material world on the human being. Each sack separately pertains to a different person, which spatially depicts the psychological weight these objects hold over the individual’s life.

MEAT! Opening Reception Friday, November 6th, 6-10pm
First, change your clocks! We’re going back an hour. And sunsets at 2pm are going to be awesome… for about a week and then we’ll all be over it.
Second, there’s a group who plan to rake leaves in Grant Park today. If you want to hang out, play in piles of leaves, and possibly participate in an impromptu installation, join them on the corner of Balbo and Columbus at Noon. Bring a rake!
