An Artichoke Project

messages and mementos

We asked everyone who was planning a visit to Temple to think about what to bring with them, be it a message to yourself, or someone who is no longer around, an object that meant something, or a photograph.  This was a chance to leave the past behind, celebrate your passions and look to the future.

Over the course of the week it was open to the public, the structure became covered with messages until there was next to no space left.  It's burning offered a cathartic moment of release to all who visited.
