Everybody Doesn't Like Something

Everybody Doesn't Like Something is a two-part exploration of how textual information is spatialized and how physical structures or forms mediate the creation of content. The projects utilizes found text from a deck of reading comprehension flashcards written in the early 1980s for children at a second to fifth grade reading level. Both parts were exhibited as part of Allyson Packer's Provisional Park at Co-Prosperity Sphere in Chicago March 6 - April 3, 2015.

Part one: Content Gone Wild

Content Gone Wild was a lecture performed at Co-Prosperity Sphere in Chicago as part of lecture series Elementary Reading curated by Ruslana Lichtzier for Provisional Park on March 21, 2015. 

Part two: Stories about Animals, History, and Food

Stories about Animals, History, and Food was presented as a series of prints for A Program of Silent Lectures curated by Willy Smart for Provisional Park on March 28, 2015. A selection of cards was enlarged and hung throughout the gallery. Periodically throughout the program, the artist replaced each card's print with a print of its reverse side.
