Sahar Khoury: Tempo Libre/Down Time

Sahar Khoury (UC Los Berkeley): Tempo Libre/Down Time. March Mini Grants

Tempo Libre/Down Time is a mobile silkscreen cart that sets up impromptu silkscreening sessions in public spaces where day laborers seek work. Day laborers that are interested in printing images/text while they wait for work will be able to do so without having to leave the corner. Sample projects include screening business cars, personal photos and drawings made on site onto t-shirts, political posters, and/or letters for loved ones in the home country. TL/DT has been operating on Hearst st. in Berkeley, less than two miles from the UCB campus for over a year. Once completed, there will be an exhibition of the work.
