Fairbanks Update

in Design Labs, Fairbanks

Candy Chang gave an uplifting presentation at the Blue Loon last night, and both the artist and the audience engaged in a thoughtful Q&A session afterward.

We’re almost done setting the giant message on our giant piece of construction fabric. Thanks to all of our volunteers for helping grid, outline, and paint. Next up: how to best attach this to the Polaris?

Tell Us Your Hopes and Memories of the Polaris Building

in Design Labs, Fairbanks

The street-level component of Looking For Love Again opened for business yesterday, with the installation of the chalk holders. By nightfall, people had begun to participate –  sharing their memories of the past, and dreams of the future – by writing on the chalkboards.

For those who are not able to participate in downtown Fairbanks, Candy will soon launch a website that will accept memories of and dreams for the Polaris building (a virtual chalkboard). We’ll post the website address here within the next day or so. Read more

If all goes according to plan, the painted fabric will ornament the Polaris building by Thursday or Friday. Thanks to Sue, Jessica, Carol, Dave, Jack, Trent and Mike for helping to stitch, grid and paint, and to Bettisworth North for providing the grid printouts. Read more
