Art 198, BFA Seminar, Fall 2013

In the BFA Seminar we did a project for Parking Day San Jose. Parking Day is an international phenomenon which aims to "take back the commons," turning parking spaces into mini parks. We brainstormed and came up with a plan, and the students formed teams for fabrication and documentation of the project.  Here is the fun video documentary the Art 198 students made:

The video makes me look like the worst bowler ever. In reality, when I picked up the cardboard bowling ball, I wasn't expecting it to be so sharp from the laser-cutting that it was like a giant paper cut waiting to happen. I dropped the ball instead of bowling it!
My favorite line in the video is, "I'm on Team Paint."
