Water, water everywhere
Water is a theme lately. I’ve started my residency on Governors Island and it’s glorious:
I’ll be working on new pamphlets-to-be until December, and commuting by boat to get there.
And some pamphlets traveled to Minnesota to educate the masses on a LAKE, which is an unexpected place to find paper products, but no matter. Artist and Administrator Sarah Peters organized a project called the Floating Library, which is exactly what it sounds like, and stocked it with artist-made publications for those in canoes and the occasional swim-up patron. I’m sure a weekend on the lake is exactly what my pamphlets needed after a hard season of work.
You can read more about the project here and here.
I’ve added “boat-based distribution” to my list of distribution alternatives for when the post office finally folds.
