Curated by Glen Helfand and Rebecca Bollinger
A temporary art space is created in the Alameda Shopping Center.
Graduate Students from CCA create unique and unusual shopping experiences for mall-goers.
People dance... sculpt globes... trade a can of food for a porcelain sculpture of a can... draw zombies... and much much more!

Artist and Writer, Alex Vikmanis' Super Shopping Stories!
Alex created a cozy fireside experience where visitors could snuggle up and listen to a recorded shopping story, or, if they were lucky, have one read to them personally by the artist himself!
Artist Dorathy Lye, in keeping with her ongoing investigation of personal navigation and relationships to space, created several shopping-cart/walking stick prototypes. Geared more toward children because of their small size, the cart-guides were charming mobile sculptures.
Artist George Pfau asks Mall Goers to recollect any zombie sightings they might have had at the mall or its surrounding areas. Visitors illustrate their sightings and take home a copy of the Super Pop-Up Press, full of personal accounts of zombie sightings.
Artist Jay Dion presents a wall of Porcelain vessels cast from the forms of tin cans. Dion offers an exchange: one of his sculptures for a can of food brought in by the visitor. Swap by swap the wall of pristine artist multiples is replaced with the colorful labels of canned corn, condensed milk, cranberry sauce... just in time for Thanksgiving.
