The House Life Project Cup Factory
Meredith Brickell worked with local residents to produce a collection of handmade ceramic cups. A set of cups, which represents the collective efforts of the community, will be left at the house as a gift the future homeowner. Each person who helped make the cups received a finished cup to take home as a reminder of their participation in the project.
Meredith Brickell is the Project Leader for the House Life team. For her, the House Life Project is an opportunity to use art to engage in a dialogue about “collective memory, ownership and responsibility, and perceived value.” Brickell is currently an Associate Professor of Art at DePauw University.
