use of cars and the numerous parking lots that surround the campus. Throughout a 6 or so hour period on a normal weekday morning, a dedicated team of 50 something volunteers and "professional" parking attendants stationed all around the various lots directing every single person that sought to park on campus into a specifically designated lot according to the color of their car. Organized into dark blue, blue, light metallic blue, silver & gray, black, beige, brown, metallic
rasberry, yellow, electric blue, white, aqua, green, and red, the campus soon became transformed, from the everyday mass of people in cars struggling to find the best space in the lot closest to their destination, to a working piece of installation art that created a more interesting, interactive, and thought provoking environment for the thousands of people involved. What a neat project to pull off!
