Tuesday Flying Squad 10/23

We started out the day at the Brooklyn Museum. When we discovered it was closed (despite what Google Maps told us before making the walk over), we decided to play hide and seek for a bit outside. I also gave them some challenges (e.g. Mateo had to “shovel” the sidewalk). We then headed off to the village to work more on individual houses and to make some furniture (e.g. James made a nice chair with a holder for his shovel). We also discovered some unused telephone booths (like Sophie Calle’s!) on the third floor of the library and checked our geocache.

Tuesday Flying Squad 10/16

Today we focused on building homes in The Village. We went to an art supply store and a hardware store to get paint, wood, a shovel, a saw, etc. We also found objects on the street. We built a “Town Hall” and started on a storage shed and personal homes for the team. I also started out the day discussing land ownership and discussing J. J. Rousseau’s Discourse on Inequality and the idea of the absurdity of land ownership.
