Creative Action and the NEIGHBORGAPBRIDGE class presents a participatory installation investigating stress and comfort.
In this cultural probe participants are invited to share stories about their experiences of stress and descriptions of their beds, then crumble the paper they wrote on (to relieve the stress) and post the story on the wall in the Otis cafe. More info at neighborgapbridge.tumblr.com.
