In response to APEC's (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) November 2011 conference in Honolulu, Eating in Public, in collaboration with Arm and Roller Press, Tadpole Studio, and others, initiated a multi-platform signage project to oppose APEC.
We put out a call to solicit, "all old tee-shirts – any color, size, design." Approximately 1,000 shirts and flat sheets were contributed. Printing was executed with a team of over 20, deploying a controlled system of chance at each and every step. Each resulting shirt is unique. Amazing textual and visual juxtapositions abound, reaffirming that autonomy and agency is nothing to be afraid of. All items were distributed free for people who will wear/use them. $5,000 for those who would not.
