Once or twice a year, the team Odyssey Works chooses one participant to undergo a transformation, to embark on an Odyssey. Interwoven into the participant's life, the Odyssey can contain art and design objects, friends and family, or a group of complete strangers. Participants have been buried alive, kidnapped by people in pink onesies, and even in the case of one participant--novelist Rick Moody--found himself in Canada not knowing what he was doing there until he discovered a cello concert in a field playing just for him. Some Odysseys are short. Some go on for months.
Meet the Odyssey Works team! Abraham Burickson and Ayden LeRoux will sign copies of their new book, Odyssey Works: Transformative Experiences for an Audience of One (Princeton Architectural Press), at BookCourt on Nov. 9 at 7pm. They will be in conversation with Clarinda Mac Low of Culture Push.
Free to attend. Open to the public.
