Indeed – bonjour, hallo, hola, and hej. Following (loosely) the scientific method, I present to you my brand new blog in an easy to read format.
the theory: this year, 2011, I invite you – willing friends, family, colleagues, and volunteers to join me for another Megan Stevens, exclusive, participatory art project.
the prediction: we all can agree that we live in a wonderful part of the country surrounded by nature, sunshine (the occasional fog), art, and culture…but what else can we take away from our beautiful place?
the experiment: I would like to take you on a once-a-month architectural tour of a building in our humble Bay Area. So bring your lovely selves! your cameras, your sketchbooks, your journals. your open minds, your pencils, your motivation.
the observation: you will get the chance to flex that creative muscle while learning a bit more about your fair city than you did before. I would like to take your words, sketches, photos, and other images and post them here. They can remain anonymous – but remember, this is a participatory project. Its my tribute to the area, my friends, and the world wide web.
No “true” scientific experiment is done without research. Keeping totally professional, mine is no different. Amidst my Danish roots four summers ago, I studied architecture and design. Our program required we keep a sketchbook of the places we visited and of the things we saw. I now have a wonderful keepsake full of memories that will last forever.
So join me and become (somewhat) famous.
