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.
when these zombies are on the loose protect your marbles! this comedy is about zombies that forget what they are supposed to eat! so they eat marbles. (more marble zombies movies coming soon. also the editor is cool.)
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.
Today we settled in to making The Village our chosen public space to embrace as our own (the initial assignment I gave to the group based on Sophie Calle’s Gotham Handbook assignment). We also made some fake advertisements, created some Push Pocket Art (art to secretly donate to strangers), and found some geocaches.

Today we created our own Geocache, looked for two other geocaches and found one successfully, visited a toy store and M’s little brother at school.

We hid our journal in the stacks of the library for the first time today! We also went on a scavenger hunt in Target, played music in the Guitar Center, and went Halloween costume shopping.
