SRS + Carlos Matallana
Community led institutions: Media – Parents and Teachers associations, Private institutions, Finance, Education, Social Media
A sequential set of the sculptural pieces (letter-size folded paper) will explore the evolution of the most common forms of government in human history until today. An additional segment of sculptures will raise questions about the future of the ‘democracy’ we know today.
A series of workshops (free and open to the public) will address these questions by gathering experienced voices (parents, economists, lawyers, government officials, lobbyists, artists, educators, journalists, health workers) as every participant from their own perspective will try to verbalize their take in the future of democracy while translating it into folded paper.
These folded sculptures made during the workshop will be added as sculptural answers while the verbal Q&A would be published as a podcast.
