Things are almost winding down with the mall art project. This weekend I got to go again as artist, and this time, for the first time, to perform creation in a shopping mall with my new typewriter in tow. Previously, I’d been wearing (uncomfortably) the director’s hat and working as researcher/documentarist for much of the expeditions.
I had a lot of fun writing short texts ( prose poems ) on my new Royal portable typewriter, inspired by conversations with people at the mall.
If you haven’t been by, definitely go check Daniel’s market out. Great indoor market with art, artisan & vintage items.
And if you’re an artist looking for a place to promote and sell your work, they have a vendor application page. Aside from hooking me up with this new-old machine, Daniel is supporting local artists by creating & coordinating this space for everyone to have the opportunity to build a regular clientele. Great initiative to support and get involved in.
