Rethinking The “Scary Clown” form, as court jester, confidant of the King. Kids activities at a funeral. Talking to kids about death & what aspects the “inner child” within adults need similar rituals and #activitystations.

#DesignThinking Considerations

We will need to culturally reconcile the celebratory nature of Festival of Lights as we navigate our #HauntCouture civic art collections in #CorpseBridal #form.

#DesignThinking: How to reflect on Angels of Light and Resurrected Bodies without sinking into trite religious platitudes. He or she may be in a better place, but this may not be what mourners are yet ready to hear. Good Mourning starshine: “clean” mourning is a #sanitation #exercise. If we mindfully observe rituals like Jesa, Sitting Shiva, Dia Des Los Muertos and All Hallows (Halloween, All Saints and All Souls) we can be more prepared to mourn when we actually need to. Adults, check out Jonathan Tropper’s This is Where I Leave You for a “get real” illustration of a family dealing with their stuff as they reluctantly observe an old-fangled" ritual.

#Stir pod

Investigate which cultures bring food (when, why and how) and which ones don’t.

Covering Mirrors- a Sitting Shiva ritual. I covered one in the house to acknowledge the recent death of a cousin. I immediately noticed how often I use it as a “beat,” like actors do, moving around the house.

A bit blurry like tearful eyes. I actually like this picture better.  Lovemaking can be a great relief for mourning adults . (#SacredSexy/Grief)

CivicArt Collections Glossary of Terms

CivicArt Asset: a completed artwork with rider & scheduled maintenance 

 

Open Project: work in progress for individual or collaborative development (a basic costume completed, designthinking product roadmap for next citizen is outlined, materials identified: add this kind of embroidery with this thread) or ongoing seasonal efforts (e.g. natural dyed eggs, replacing inventory of civicart gifts)

 

PodsProgramming: Locally defined activities based on global standards that address Labor, Education, Systemic or Entertainment requirements. PodsProgramming mimics the life cycle: birth (ideation, beginning, conception, sexuality) Life (enjoyment, maintenance, renewal) Transformation (response to stressors, reinvention, rebirth) or Death (end of cycle). These #BeliefDNA phases also map to common life experiences by #AgeGroups (youth, reproductive age, midlife & classic/seniors.)

 

CivicArt Collections: a curated group of civicart assets, open projects & related podsprogramming. 

 

CivicArt Gifts: MakerPad & RnB Homes cannot store endless completed work. In fact, the materialsmanagement flow in and out of the home is essential for ongoing, renewable creativity and inspiration. Tagging and sharing gifts based on #governancestandards means that relevant assets can be housed (and enjoyed) elsewhere, and called back for exhibitions, initiatives or maintenance. With appropriate riders and identification (BeliefID) their security and care can be assigned to a qualified citizen or place so that we can live with real artworks vs. having them stored away in museums. (#BeliefID, #Shelf project) This will eliminate socio-economic barriers to the finer materials necessary for education and innovation: luxury #experience is regularly defined by access to these. Citizens cannot innovate with materials unfamiliar to them: transforming environmental concerns (e.g. planned obsolescence) requires an optimized #CitizenExperience. In the effort to streamline this experience, gifting occurs out of the abundance of what we’ve created and is also a primary outreach & marketing mechanism (experiencing is believing)
