This is the container that we will be working out of. It is located in front of Sweet Mothers Cafe on Courtenay Place, right next to the giant camera sculpture. We’ve had it open for the past two nights. Rob and Craig (from Candywhistle) set up the container yesterday and got it ready for some plastic fusing goodness.
We are currently running a display showing a live feed of data related to our project. We’re using yahoo pipes to create a custom RSS feed using keywords pulled from various websites and search engines. It dynamically updates and displays title and body from the RSS feed. It’s been a good experience being on site and getting people interested in the project. Tomorrow and this weekend Rob and I will be around to create upcycled material from plastic bags. So empty out those drawers full of plastic bags and bring them down to donate to our project. As it progresses we will be running workshops and posting tutorials on how you can make your own material and get on the upcycling bandwagon.
Check back here for updates.
