Can you thing of anything you’d rather do in the middle of February then cooling off and chilling out in a pool? We can’t either. That’s why this February’s Second Thursday, the Icebox Project Space will be transformed into a heated tropical oasis, complete with a DJ, coat check, towel check, flamingoes, and an above-ground pool. Put on those trunks, grab a cocktail, and enjoy the sounds of POISON!!!
PLUS enter to win a private pool party on either Saturday February 13th or Valentine’s day February 14th! Tickets will be sold at the event.
Happy New Year! Here at the Icebox, we begin this year looking forward to new projects, new friends, and new possibilities. Last year we started a tradition of collecting and presenting individual forecasts, and on February 11th, we will release the second annual publication of predictions for the future. We are asking for your help by contributing to this year’s publication.
In the 2015 predictive text, Feeding Speculation, we asked participants to decide upon a vision for the future over dinner and to send us the prediction, along with a menu of the meal, and whom you ate it with.
In the upcoming 2016 predictive text collection, we are focusing less on the food surrounding the predictive discussion and more on the dynamics of the participants and their relationships to one another. We ask that you get together with a friend or friends, and create a prediction, vision, or forecast that inhabits the space of one 8.5”x7” (h x w) page. This can happen over dinner, by correspondence, through psychic abilities, however you see fit, and with any number of individuals.
Please submit your prediction (to fit on one 8.5” x 7” page), along with a brief summary of participants, and their relationship to one another.
These collected predictions will become the publication, and we want to include you!!!
The release of this publication will be concurrent with our Second Thursday exhibition, February 11th, 2016.
If you are interested and would like your prediction to be considered for the publication, please email your prediction to email@example.com no later then January 31, 2016.
Feeding Speculation: Annual Predictive Texts
Feeding Speculation is a publication recently released by Tim Belknap and Ryan McCartney, the directors of the Icebox Project Space. At the start of 2015, the Icebox Project Space approached several friends with a simple idea: share a meal with someone, and over the course of conversation arrive at a prediction for the coming week, year, decade or more. A number of people participated, sitting down to dinner with friends, significant others, and family members, whether over a homecooked meal or out at a restaurant. The gamut of ideas that arose from these conversations ranged from predictions for the next day to far into the future, from projections for one’s own life to musings on the fate of the entire world. These predictions were then put into this publication, Feeding Speculation: Annual Predictive Texts, which was released at the Second Thursday of February 2015.
