Meet Me In St. Louis | Meet Me At The Fair
March 17, 2011 - March 18, 2011
Location: Between Kemper Art Museum & Walker Hall
Category: Projects & Demos
Demonstrators: Avery Lawrence, Robin McDowell
This collaborative project will serve as a storefront, printshop, and courier service throughout the conference. A mobile printshop outfitted with silk-screening and tabletop letterpress equipment will serve as the hub of the operation. Conference attendees will be able to order from a catalog of printed goods and delivery services.
Leading up to the conference, individuals will be able to peruse a catalog of goods and services online. On the first day of the project, conference participants can call in to a dedicated phone line or place orders in person at the mobile printshop, for a print that will be delivered to any other conference participant. The sender must specify time, location, and circumstances for the delivery. The storefront will close when it has reached its quota for deliveries for following day.
