Footbridge Fortunes by: Holly M., Kelsey O., Kerry L. and Lindsay D (click to enlarge).
We put fortunes all around the footbridge. There are more fortunes than these pictures and are spread all throughout the bridge. Some are when you look up, look down, on the railing and the beams of it.
Each group in the class began by posting a photograph of a potential "monument" site here in Willimantic, CT. Comments about the place accompanied these preliminary images. Then, each group's proposed temporal monument was performed/ made/ constructed, on or around April 8. Results posted to the left.

The story begins on ground level, with footsteps. They are myriad, but do not compose a series. They weave places together. They are not localized; they spatialize. See the Class's own Maps of Meandering>>>>>
