Final touches are coming together on our collaborative installation “Today is Tomorrow: The Future of Colle!” It’s exciting to see the city begin to take shape!
Our students are making progress in their collaborative installation “Today is Tomorrow: The Future of Colle”, part of the project “ORIENTamenti: Reshaping Past Traditions.” For more info about the project, visit http://www.sienaart.org/wafa-hourani-orientamenti.html
On Oct 14 our Fall 2014 Project Fellow Wafa Hourani presented a public lecture on the development of his artistic practice as part of our weekly series of artist’s talks, “stARTers: assaggi d’arte.” For more info about Wafa Hourani, visit http://www.sienaart.org/wafa-hourani-bio.html
Further finalizing the layout for our collaborative installation “Today is Tomorrow: The Future of Colle.”
You can see more of the students’ work-in-progress on their individual pages:
Yesterday we had a very productive session with our fantastic group of student participants working alongside our Project Fellow Wafa Hourani to map out the different parts of our collaborative installation “Today is Tomorrow: The Future of Colle”. Everyone is now finalizing their plans for their individual contributions to this collective work, envisioning how the local cityscape could be transformed in the future. Students are thinking about what the future results of current dynamics might be such as embracing multiculturalism in the face of increasing immigration, innovative archives allowing more people to access the heritage and resources of the area, and heightened awareness for the need of energy efficiency and urban gardening to respond to the pace of climate change. Full speed ahead!
