    Last year, you might remember Megan did 30 days of painting at 90 N. High. Kind of a performance art creating painting thing. Walkers interview here >

    I’ve seen a few of the pieces in creating completeness and, though they’re much more subtle than standing in a storefront window sleeping, eating, painting and living – the level of sophistication is really ratcheted up.

    In conclusion, go see the fucking show. If you spend any amount of time engaging with the pieces, it’ll be worth it. If you spend any time engaging with the ARTIST, you will probably not leave the same.

    Think this business of having NO identity isn’t a complete idea.

    When people think about things they don’t have strong feelings about
    they simply expand the context of what they’re considering until
    it provides enough information to draw a judgement about any
    particular subset.

    EXAMPLE:
    If I said, “Quick, what do you think of the corner of Oak and 18th?” some would know that corner, most would not.

    If you knew it was in Olde Towne East, you could judge it based on that

    If you had to scale up your context to ‘urban core’ you could create an identity of the corner based on that.

    Continue to pull back to more broad and general geographic definitions until you have enough information to define it. It would go on to include Columbus, then Ohio, then Midwest, then United States, etc.

    This is the mental process happens every moment in an instant of time.

    THEREFORE I PROPOSE
    Building a stage one campaign that acknowledges the perception of Columbus at the
    level of context that people select when drawing conclusions.

    I would also propose that the context that allows the most people, the most information
    is “Midwest”

    To address and acknowledge that we are Midwest can be the starting
    point to clearing that perception and then redefining the city.

    In a hypothetical campagin to brand Columbus, you would first
    begin by challenging the current context of ‘midwest’

    A slogan that represents this idea would be,
    “Columbus: Midwest Reinvented.”
    or
    “Columbus is The New Midwest”

    Once you address what we have been to people and
    pique people’s interest in something new, you can start
    building new meaning from scratch.

    But first, what we are to most people (midwest) must be accurately addressed.

    It’s not that we don’t have an identity. It’s that the identity we
    have is collapsed up inside this greater idea of midwest or “flyover country”.

    Address that, clear it out. Then build your message. Anything less is
    trying to brand ON TOP of an existing identity, which is so large and
    vague by nature, that no details we provide about Columbus will stick.

    So, walker and I were talking about this a little tonight.

    I ended up going to to this last year based on the recommendation of 2 or 3 people i respect, and had a great experience.

    It’s a little odd to read about it in the thread, because while i can understand reports from the internet being reposed without proper context, it really didn’t reflect anything I saw going on.

    I think Columbus could do well to keep the moniker.

    The weirdness and opposition has died down, the arts scene has
    strengthened, and the idea (which has stuck around at least
    in hushed tones for several years now) could be picked back up
    and run with without nearly as much fight as we experienced the
    first time through. It’s just more real now.

    you’ve got the art or text ready!

    or design them online at skreened.com and pick em up!

    K2 – right

    If someone does feel the ridiculous need to start pointing fingers at local businesses or regions, it’s our responsibility as readers to, at least, immediately disregard those things.
