Our installation has been visited by over 1200 people. Several have been willing to engage in the interactive portion of our project and give their own opinions. Here are a few of the works YOU have added to our installation. Thank you for your interest and participation.

The Art Prize reception has come and gone with over 700 visitors to the space. The venue was full, the audience was engaged and there were great dialogs between artists, visitors, families and Art Prize dignitaries. This event was a true example of what NOT DESIGN is intended to do. People from all walks of live were given the opportunity to observe and respond to messages aimed at them and interact with the content in their own way. We observed parents explaining to their children the meaning of our images, people who rarely if ever observe art not only observing but discussing and interpreting it. The interactive room was overwhelmed with participants creating their own statements and taking the challenging step of letting us document them.
NOT DESIGN means to provide people with more relevant experiences. Last night was a huge success and we hope everyone in attendance enjoyed their experience and continues their dialog.
Thank you for your interest and participation.
All of us on the NOT DESIGN team have been eager to get out to project some light during ArtPrize. And tonight was our first night. Here’s some documentation of how it went:
Our first stop was at the entrance of the Old Federal Building.
Just what we intended–people inquiring about us and interacting with our art!
We moved our projections to the wall, too.
In this spot, we had quite a few people stop to crane their head out their car windows and pedestrians stop to look.
However, when we moved to the other side of the GRAM we weren’t quite as appreciated…a security guard asked us to ‘finish’ in 5 minutes because what we were doing wasn’t “the GRAM’s.” (…we’d like to donate our art?)
Even though we had to pack up, we did have this gem of a moment at the GRAM: this kid played with the light from our projector for a while.
We are up and running thus far. More words soon.
