aLIVe Call-to-Artists



Artist Cheryl dos Remedios is inviting artists, inventors, and community members to “imagine a transportation system designed around the human body” for the upcoming event, aLIVe (A Low Impact Vehicle exhibition). In exploring the concept of “low impact,” aLIVe asks participants to consider the effect their designs have on both persons and the environment. Not sure how to design an entire transportation system? That’s ok! aLIVe is looking for everything from “poetry to prototypes.”
