Eden Wondered, 2014

Story 8: On this spot in 2014 Eden wondered if adolescence ever ends.

During the fall of 2014 I collaborated on Portland Brick with a freshman seminar class at The Maine College of Art. Students did artist residencies in the neighborhood and collected research on the neighborhood’s history. The aim of this project is also to shape new memories of the neighborhood. To open the class, students were sent on a scavenger hunt to create their own memories in the neighborhood. When they returned, I had them try to capture their stories as potential brick phrases. Eden was a freshman that semester. This was her story from the scavenger hunt. As soon as she read this phrase I laughed out loud. What a good question. I like the idea of other people stumbling upon this brick and grinning.
