SMASH TYPE by Ben Weber

Elastic City Education Director Ben Weber invites young participants and their loved ones to become a living typewriter that creates cooperative public poetry, letter-by-letter.

Each participant will take on the role of a letter of the alphabet, tagging their personal character onto huge sheets of paper using large custom-made stamps.

The living typewriter will experiment with graffiti, poetry and propaganda using teamwork, improvisation and nonverbal communication. Hop to it!

This way holds 30 people (this includes parents) and is presented in partnership with the Staten Island Museum.
