This weekend I was talking to Montse who was visiting from Portland for my sisters graduation and she was telling me about The Portland Acupuncture Project .
Now this is just cool! Portland is exploring the interface between art, regional planning, traditional Chinese medicine and the health of the city.
From the website of the Portland Acupuncture Project:
Unfolding over the course of 2010, this 6-month art installation will coincide with a series of public workshops to help steer the Portland Plan, a guide for the city's growth over the next 25 years. Needles appearing across the city will bring attention to the some of the city's most challenging problems, greatest assets, as well as places with enormous potential.
This Project is so fascinating! Visit the website and get more info on where they have placed the needles around the city and why! Truly amazing, Where do you think needles should be placed in ABQ?
