Fluxusignment 46: Collective Voice - a Collaborative Poem-Sculpture


This interactive installation was created for Axiom Gallery's Carnival of the Arts. Fluxusignment 46 addresses sustainable practice and community dialogue. A “Ground-scored” desk, i.e. an abandoned desk acquired from a curbside, was painted with white gesso and installed in the plaza outside the Green Street MBTA station. During the carnival passersby were encouraged to add a word or words to the desk with stencils and paint pens. The resulting collaborative poem-sculpture is an expression of the collective voice of the carnival attendees. Supplementing the desk was a text defining and praising the term and practice of Ground-scoring. The attached image includes this text and documentation of the creative process. The altered desk will be sold at silent auction to benefit Axiom Gallery at an upcoming event.
