Ben Volta / Social Practice Lab(attached image shows initial concept direction)
Ben Volta is an artist working with the Asian Arts Initiative on an exiting project called the Social Practice Lab. His project will circle around ideas of ENERGY in order to create drawings based on technical imagery and personal and poetic interpretations. The drawings will be made by teens and by neighbors of all ages in the Callowhill and Chinatown communities. Weekly workshops beginning in April will result in a public art installation on the fence or in proximity to the PECO substation. The location and material for this installation is still TBD, but he is looking into temperature sensitive paint and large format screen printing. Ben met with PECO in December and they have agreed to review materials and seriously consider the project. PECO has also committed to lending one of their engineers/professors to meet with the community and teach us some of the science behind the substation.
