Museum of Possibilities

Here's  the deal:  A new public space was to be developed in Montreal, and the citizens were asked for input.  People wrote ideas on cards, attached them to flexible rods topped by large, round balloons, and then anyone who wanted could vote on the idea.  The effect is a bit message in a bottle as lollipop garden, or what the world would be like if Kate Spade designed voter booths.  At the end of the day the balloons were given away and the information that had been gathered was used to inform the direction of the new space.

Fantastic.



*This isn't pristine art.  It will cost money to build whatever ends up in the place, and wherever there's money there's business, but it's not as overt here as it is with the VW Fun Theory.
