In the second Urban Dream Brokerage public art project artist Daniel Webby invited the public to sit down with him in a vacant Wellington retail space in Victoria Street for an "identifying statement" consultation. Webby explored and workshopped ideas put forward by visitors to distil a specific phrase, and the phrase was then hand stamped onto a t-shirt for them to take home. A record of the encounters can be found at http://yourmessagehere.weebly.com/wgtn.html
"While I do see this as a service being offered," Webby says, "participants are showing a great deal of generosity by sitting down to speak with me. The process is collaborative - I start with my own set of ideas, participants enter with theirs - what is produced is something where these ideas meet."
"In this project the conversations are in themselves an outcome. The t-shirts are really just a way of documenting the encounter."
