The first edition of "The Last Time I Saw..." is now available


The Last Time I Saw..."

The first edition of "The Last Time I Saw..." is now available on the project’s website, http://timdevin.com/providence.html . The stories can be accessed either as a free PDF book, or as an interactive map.

"The Last Time I Saw..." is a Providence RI-specific book/art project that documents:

1. the last time area residents saw someone who means something to them, but who they no longer speak to; and
2. the exact locations where these meetings or sightings took place.

Free copies of the book will also be left in public places around Providence. During the ProvFlux Art Festival in July, we will also give a free walking tour.

Please note: we’re still looking for stories. If you have one that you’d like to share, please email Tim at lasttimeisaw@yahoo.com , or visit the project’s website.

Thanks!

Re: Re: Boston bomb-terrorism-art-marketing scare


Sure, I think Boston overreacted. But I think maybe a more important question is: why didn't the companies that directly benefited from all of this publicity come forward, and set everybody's minds at ease.
