Mental Map by artist Chloë Bass is an exercise in how we remember things together. Over the course of BRIC’s March and April House Parties, attendees will be invited to record their experiences through a combination of words and mixed media materials. Bass will set up a Mental Map station that sends BRIC's guests throughout the House Party carrying a series of clues and prompts. Clue/prompt envelopes will be divided into five basic categories:
- WHO – instructions for noticing others
- WHAT – instructions for making categories
- WHEN – instructions for bending time
- WHERE – instructions for making space
- WHY – instructions for how we talk about it
After using the clues and prompts to explore the party and events of the day, participants will be asked to leave a single item for the mental map: a short written statement, a drawing, an object, etc. All collected materials will be bagged as evidence and available on view as part of the Mental Map installation on view.
This project is presented in conjunction with the Mapping Brooklyn exhibition.
