This Fall, Forklift artists supported six students at Wesleyan University to embed with Physical Plant employees and build relationships with the people who keep their campus running. In November, students and their employee partners shared creative presentations with their Environmental Studies class.
Participating students and employees mixed an audio track with recorded sounds of the movers working, shared stats about plumbing work across campus, and checked the heat in the classroom in coordination with music.
