24 Hour Roman Reconstruction Project by Steve Hopson on Flickr.
Saw this at MASS MoCA last month (pictures from that trip coming soon) and am still thinking about it. It was hard to find good documentation online, but the exhibit featured a short video.
The 24 Hour Roman Reconstruction Project at the Arthouse at Jones Center, Austin Texas, September 26, 2009. The 24 Hour Roman Reconstruction Project, or, Building Rome in a Day, is a participatory performance instigated by Liz Glynn and executed by a coalition of the willing. Arthouse at the Jones Center is the oldest statewide visual arts organization in Texas, and the only statewide organization dedicated to contemporary art.
