Read Georges Perec, "The Street," and under his inspiration, spend at least a half hour sitting and observing in a public location. Make note of what you see, then write a one-pager (post to your blog or word process and print) about your visual experience. Collect 10 images (snapshots, found images in magazines or newspaper, drawings, flyers, etc.) that somehow relate to what you observed at your location. Bring these to class along with map pins or push pins.
Also, start your personal class blog and bring me your url.
