Throughout TBA Cyrus Smith will be acting as a reporter to his fellow classmates' projects. Reports will be posted on the Neighborhood Projects blog, documenting the process and progress of this often elusive medium we call "social practice."

Keep an eye out, as Cyrus will also be out collecting "man on the street" interviews all over Portland, during the run of TBA 08.

During the TBA festival, Avalon Kalin will be roaming Portland neighborhoods asking people to help him realize the Raymond Carver short story Viewfinder. This will involve them buying (or maybe just accepting) a photo of their home taken by the artist, and perhaps a walk-around of several portraits of them and their home, if they wish.

If you would like to participate in this project, please email Avalon at avalonkalin AT yahoo DOT com.
