Art and Malls

How do I get there?

Well I started here reading about the great old tradition of Malls as we know them may be dead. Which has a link to a site about Dead Malls. And on there is an article about The couple who lived in a mall and it turns out that one of those mall dwellers (which is a totally fascinating story of it's own) is quite a fascinating artist with a profile on RISD's site as an alum. See Michael Townsend creates Tape art which the home page describes as:

"a method of creating collaborative, temporary murals and installations using a
special low-adhesive Drawing Tape. For twenty years, we have worked in
hospitals, schools, museums, and public spaces all over the world.
on its scale, a Tape Art drawing can be made in a few hours or a few days. Once
completed, the drawing remains on the walls for only a short time: from several
hours to a couple of days. We develop the theme and content of each drawing
on-site as we draw."
