the 24 hours commons – 15.03.15 10-18 at the field

An effort at the commonning of labor, management, design, production, profits during a 24 hour experiment.
Using resources available from the commons.
(an 8 hour work day, 36 hour delivery time).

In this experiment, we’ll come together and from scratch we will design, build and sell a useful product within a fixed period of time using collected, gathered and donated common goods.

What will we make: tables? bread? bags of dirt? mugs? Come and help decide. Profits will be collectively managed as well. All unsold things and unused resources will be returned to the commons (possible ground to dust).

This is an event between art and production in that there is an artistic process (creative play with the social and material) and a productive goal (the making of something to sell for a profit).

Drop by anytime to participate or come by in the afternoon to buy whatever useful item we decide to make.
Note…10 AM is the time when the work floor opens and initial production decisions (profit distribution work flow, labor distribution etc…) will be made. Stop by then if you want a say.
