In the spirit of Space Insurgency, our summer Digital Ethnography class took over a public space. The assignment was to:
1.design a creative and generous situation in a public space in downtown Olympia, WA
2.to observe the human interactions during the event and
3.to tell a story about the event that took place
The students put on Aq(ward) Faire: A Festival of the Absurd in a parking lot surrounding Olympia’s well-loved aquifer.
