Project http://www.daddybydaddy.com/research.html embodies social science, research methodologies, participatory research, market research, consumption/collection, appearance/disappearance, interior design, exterior design, the Internet, the aesthetics of communication, education, miseducation, selfishness, and community.
i. DADDY’s work is premised on using an object within its environment to participate in research and collect information that can be used by said object’s designer for the purpose of creating a better art/design object.
ii. DADDY’s work is premised on using participants within the community to communicate “their” values about the object to the designer and other communities participating with the object.
iii. The piece, which originated in 2010, is an ongoing piece. The serial nature of the piece encourages a narrative to develop within the art-consuming community (both locally and via the internet), and accommodates changing political climate and value systems.
ii. Situated in the historically migrant neighborhood of Pilsen, Chicago, the Storefront Studio will host a series of projects and exhibitions surrounding ideas of proximal distance.
iii. Curated between Boston and Chicago, Proximal Distance developed primarily via internet communication with an online archive that documents the installations, performances and workshops based out of the Storefront Studio.
