From the 28th to 29th of September the Spacebuster stopped in Cleveland in order to bubble up in Wade Oval Park.
Partnering up with local institutions just as the Cleveland Institute of Art, Cleveland Urban Design Collective and the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland the translucent bubble served as a location for student workshops, debates, film screenings and concerts.
Our first day in Cleveland started with a public design workshop led by Kent State University's Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative, along with 8th grade students from the nearby Glenville neighborhood, inside and outside Spacebuster to build quick prototypes of public street furniture Glenville.
In the evening, area musicians were invited to drop in for a jam session, while visitors enjoyed good music, food and - in the end - help deflate Spacebuster and put it to bed for the night.
The participants were happy - and so were we!
The second day in Cleveland was filled with brainstorming sessions between CIA students and East Cleveland residents and youth, orchestral music by Cleveland Institute of Music and a portrait drawing party. All people were invited to join the actions and meet up with the artists and students.
And now – New York City. See you in a few days!
