ISO Classifieds at UofI

  • As part of a workshop at the University of Illinois, we asked Illinis to create classifieds. Figure One gallery in downtown Champaign was a site for transactions, and ultimately an exhibition showcasing the aftermath. We ended up with tacos; mix tapes recalling bitter break-ups; handwritten descriptions of perhaps accidental volunteers; lots of anonymous sentiments; tales of treehouses; a crowd-sourced newspaper; accounts of a boy mostly ignored at a bar; and voluntary fun and romance.
