We watched these videos on Monday and we will start Wednesday’s class talking about how these projects compare. We want to think about how they engage with the questions of public art in sites, cities, and communities. The questions I posed, to get us started, were:
- What are the similarities/differences in these projects?
- Who is the public in these works?
- What is the relationship of the artist(s) to the site and the community?
- How are the notions of community different/similar in these projects?
