Member News: From Ellie Brown
It is my please to annouce the completion of the book
Ten Days in the CAPSULE
a collaborative project with Zach Webber.
The book contains images and writings from the project.
We set out to put ourselves in a experimental scenario to complete a relationship from meeting to divorce in the span of ten days to test social norms we are meant to follow. The interesting result of the project was that by pretending to follow the scripted norms, we fell into them ourselves. Please read about it in the book (or on the blog).
