SPACE SPACE SPACE is a three-day gathering centering around alternative pedagogy, self-organizing, and exploring ways of disrupting the productions of knowledge within academic structures. From March 29-31, 2018, SPACE SPACE SPACE will bring together various Detroit-based/affiliated thinkers and creators leading workshops on a variety of issues and strategies including systems of education within the prison industrial complex, the effects of space on bodies and physiology, community building through participatory dinners, and decolonization within design practices. The gathering will be held within an autonomous inflatable plastic structure sited on but not within the architecture of the Cranbrook Academy of Art campus in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
The gathering will include daily dinner events, and Cranbrook Academy of Art students and guests will be invited to make use of the inflatable structure during the gathering as a temporary commons to facilitate events/workshops that critically engage the structure and function of pedagogy and community within the Academy. Space3 is organized by a group of Cranbrook students and alumni whose interest stems from a desire to respond to the contained nature of the academy and to reimagine its relationship to the Detroit metro area. A desired outcome of this gathering would be to inspire a continued dialogue and collaboration between Cranbrook and Detroit-based artists and educators.
I was a core member of the organizing team and design team. I headed the design of the custom typeface and collaborated with http://rorykingetc.com/ on all assets.
