500 Tubes infected a room. Our living room was filled with cardboard growth. Paper stalactites. Cloth fauna. The animals were us.

SEE:

It's not an infection unless it's alive. It's not alive unless it grows.

The Salem (Oregon) Art Association has given their Project Space, a former department store, to Adam and Rosalynn Rothstein (us!) to transform. To tube it. And we will give this crystalline environment to you.

The tubes are:

Anti-: Anarchistic Artistic Augmented Autonomous Balanced Chaotic Collective Distributed Echoed Evolving Experiential Independent Individualistic Instant Interpretative Lateral Liberal Ludic Multiplistic Multivocal Networked Rhizomatic Self-governing Shared Specific Spontaneous Unbiased Work.

Pro-: Anti-Social Authoritarian Binary Bureaucratic Censoring Centralized Controlled Dendric Disgusting Dualistic Incorporated Invasive Libidinal Mobbed Obligatory Ordered Owned Programmed Pollutant Schematic Segmented Shrieking Sorted Stratified Structured Unified Universal Vertical Violent Product.

Our infection will belong to you.

The installation will open June 2, for one month, at Project Space 150 Liberty Street Salem, Oregon

Here are the things we need: Hot glue fabric poly-fill A one-way truck trip 5000 tubes

The Salem Art Association, a non-profit, is giving us $250. With $650, we could cover the rest of the expenses (the tubes are by far the biggest expense, at $800).

YOU can help. And then the tubes are yours.

Please treat things as you would like them to be treated.
