While it doesn't seem like much, this was a very monumental moment for me. Asking my friends and family to participate in one of my projects was both scary and exciting! I was pleasant surprised at the support I received. Most of my family and friends are from small towns in Wisconsin and Iowa. As I continue with this project I want to be able to branch out from my immediate network and reach more diverse groups of people within the Twin Cities.
My next step is to reach out to the different clubs at MCAD and ask this same question. When will this project end? I don't know. I really like these ideas of empathy, care, compassion and appreciation for others in public spaces so I would like to continue in one way or another with these ideas in mind!
