Portland Brick: a project in building public memory

What if our city could literally tell its own stories? Portland Brick is a place-based public art installation that stories the city with moments its residents deem significant. For this project, historical facts, individual memories, and future wishes for the city will be stamped into bricks that have been customized to fill the gaps in the sidewalks. A website will connect these bricks to longer form stories. Some of the future wishes for the city will then catalyze public art interventions. In this way, the city’s stories literally repair the sidewalks.
