Proposal: Storefront Installation @ Lorem Ipsum

Monday, April 2, 2012 | Posted by Alex
Dominic Casserly & !ND!V!DUALS!

Describe your project.
We propose building an immersive installation in the Lorem Ipsum Storefront in Inman Square. As a Boston-based artist collective we’ve worked to invigorate spaces all over the east coast and want to offer a permanent store front installation in our own community.

How will you use the grant to make your idea happen?
We will use our own studio and tool shop and donate our time to build this work. The funds will go entirely towards the building materials: screws, saw blades, lumber and paint.

Why and to whom is your project important?
Lorem Ipsum is a community-oriented book store in Inman Square that hosts a variety of events, from evening in-store concerts to free classes and workshops and gallery exhibits; they also offer the largest Zine Library in the New England. Lorem Ipsum asked us for help with their storefront display and we would love to donate our installation prowess. As a collective we see the importance and power of collaboration to make amazing artistic endeavors come together. A one-of-a-kind storefront installation would help bring attention to such a positive community center in Inman Square.

If you win, what is the expected status of your project by the time the next Feast Mass rolls around in 3–4 months?
We plan to design, build and install the Lorem Ipsum Project by July of 2012.
