The final exhibit for aRtPI has been on display on the Greene screen since Wednesday April 23rd. Below are pictures of the works being displayed on the screen. After asking contributors, it was decided that the artist would remain anonymous. On each slide I added the aRtPI logo to generate interest and included two informational slides to encourage people to join the group.

When we were asked to choose a community to study I decided on the Architecture community. For the first photo analysis I documented images that defined several different aspects of community that I could see present in the Greene Building. I also thought of sharpies as a way of advertising the community event or organization that I will be developing.

After studying the general architecture community I realized how the Greene building isolates itself from the rest of campus. Despite the fact that there are several display areas, only a couple are seen by outsiders when they happen to circulate from the main door of Greene to the side door on the first floor. I analyzed through photographs the many display and security areas throughout the building. At this point, I decided that the project should be about creating a way for all RPI students to share work that they are proud of and create a way for these works to be displayed. Possible sites include the vestibule of Greene and the main display areas on the first floor.

I decided to name my project aRtPI to emphasize the unification of the whole school and the idea of art in general. I created a group on facebook open to all RPI students where they are invited and encouraged to post images of works they are proud of. The next step is to print these images and post them in the Greene building for other students to seem them. At this point a sign will indicate that anyone is welcome to post their own work on the wall as well.

After one week of the Facebook group being created, several people have joined and posted works. A trend that I have noticed is that people join the group, but are hesitant to post images, particularly non-architecture students. As a response, I have sent messages to the group encouraging them to post any works that they are proud of, regardless of the media form.
