For my final project I want do a public space art media. The idea came after looking at another project in the internet. Doing some research I found Candy Chang project call “Before I die.” So I want do something similar but the topic would be about the Bronx or daily life. I want post sticke note in the Bronx and have a question or quite “The Bronx is…” or “what I want to accomplish?” The ideas is to bring the community together and see what about people thinks or want do in life. By doing this project the community can get more closer together and help each other in life or get together to make the Bronx a better place
While thinking where I can do my public art project sitting down in the cafeteria in the music building, I saw that students and professors came in and out of the cafeteria. Some of them seat down to eat, read a book, do homework and other waiting for another students or a person. While this happen dow to one of the entire of the cafeteria everyone stop to see the table, which there was an events. Some stop because whoever was in the table ask them, another stop because they saw them. So I was thinking putting up a paper and asking a question in the wall. but in this case I wouldn’t ask or tell any one about what was in that paper. I was thinking everyone go up to the paper and write, answer the question. So that why I choose the cafeteria. The question was “In one word, describe Lehman College as a whole” this place is very important for the experiment because we all meet here, when you walk in you just don’t see one group of students. We see from each department, also, students from the Lehman Hight school seating around. So with the project Im trying that everyone write something about Lehman college, but it would be self-independet, can this be accomplish Yes!! because when we see something new around a place we often walk by we look at it. Also, I think it be a good idea to see what everyone think about Lehman college, and MAYBE they would leave a comment about the dislike or like about the campus. So, how we can bring this to Social Media well by putting a tag and then that would not only be in one place but now we will have people outside describe Lehman. So I will record the moment talk some pictures.
Those small places in the building are very good for the community and those that come to work at those building because everyone can socialize with each other. But those places work more in the city (Manhattan) then any other place just because people go to work, shop, walk, and do other actives then outside of Manhattan. thats one reason it work inside the city, then the bronx. but I seeing some areas that are being used as social places to gather in the street. Well in Fordham Rd that a small street that is close now and there chair and tables, where the people can sit, and have a lunch with a friend. Well over roll those plazas are great for everyone.
