The turnout and participation for December’s First Friday event in Bryan was mind-blowing. I got food poisoning or something and had to leave really early in the night, but luckily I have amazing friends who took care of the camera for me so I still have a timelapse.
My favorite part of this particular event is that I wasn’t there explaining the project to people, and it had the most interaction of any event yet! I think that it was mainly the setting and foot traffic through the exhibition that enticed so many people to just read the cards I had out and glue beads and happy thoughts to the tree without prompting by a curator. I am extremely happy that the sculpture and setup are now self-explanatory enough for people to interact with it by themselves.
