writing for building a performance by Joanne Bristol


writing for building considers the built environ­ment as alive and mutable as its users. The performance invites the public to write and share a text addressed to a building of social or historical significance. The text could range from political manifestos, to love letters, to generative or useful questions. Texts could be read aloud, physically attached to, or inserted into the building. writing for building offers a structure through which people might collectively articulate and animate materi­al histories and personal experiences of the built environment.
