Decorating Noisebridge[edit | edit source]

Doing Doocratic Art Excellently[edit | edit source]

These are some suggestions on ways to do art both doocratically and excellently by asking around for input.

  • If you have an idea for excellent art, share your idea with others.
  • Put together a description and concept art and post it here under proposed art projects.
  • Post a link to Noisebridge-discuss
  • Share it on the Slack and Discord channels like #general, #hackitorium and #art.
  • Show it to random people and solicit feedback
  • Show others who may want to help make your art or do more art inspired by what you're doing

Mobile Art[edit | edit source]

If your art is non-permanently installable (hung from a wall rather than painted directly on it), great!

  • you can put it up with some asking around for feedback in a place that seems excellent.

Installation Art[edit | edit source]

If your art is permanently altering the space (painted on a wall for example), discuss!

  • Post your idea proposal to the mailing list so people have time to understand what you want to do.
  • Do people like the idea? Get opinions on the best place to install the art.
  • What things will happen in the location? (Will shelves be moved that could cover your art up?)
  • Can art inspire people doing activities at a location? (Tesla overlooks numerous oscilloscopes.)
  • Does it need to be a mural or could you hang it for increased longevity when the space is rearranged?
  • Does what you're doing fit the description you gave or has it scope creeped into something different than what people expect?

Art Modifications[edit | edit source]

  • Do-acracy requires following our one rule: Be excellent to each other!
  • Being excellent means not going ahead and doing something you think others may object to.
  • But if it seems others would be fine with it, then, do it!

Reversibility[edit | edit source]

  • If, along the way (or after), you find that there are objections, then you have to be willing to undo it.
  • And the people with objections should be willing to help. (Assuming the artist acted in good faith.)
  • That's Do-acracy, in action. As we've seen it at Noisebridge since it's beginning.
  • In the event that paint needs to be removed, Goof-off spray], a few minutes to soften up and a metal spatula can scrape off most kinds of canned paint.
