PARTICIPATORY SPORT FOR CRAFT ARTISTS
"The Custodian" was created with the intent of solving a lack of the act of tangibly sharing experiences between people. I have designed a nomadic storage center to exchange experiences anywhere. This manually operated rickshaw made of old cupboards and wooden drawers is attached to a steel wagon for carting from place to place. Upon the arrival of the cart, the Custodian sits awaiting passerby's willing to give or take an experience of their own. When a days work is done, the Custodian goes on alone to repeat this event an infinite amount of times in hopes to prevent the extinction of exchange of stories and experiences through physical objects and letters. What is important is the act of exchange to illustrate sharing and communication, not the items of exchange themselves.
