This Machine Has A Soul!

Warm Cookies of the Revolution

Funding Received: 2016
Denver, CO
Funding Period: 2 years

In response to the planned expansion of the I-70 freeway in Denver, CO, artists from the Civic Health Club, Warm Cookies of the Revolution, will design and install a series of interactive Rube Goldberg-esque machines as the center of a participatory budgeting process.  These machines will be physical manifestations of the complicated interactions of the policies and players at work in the community, as well as a fun and attention-grabbing invitation for residents to participate in deciding how funding should be spent in their neighborhoods.
