Mississippi Basin Model

On Sunday I traveled with my representation seminar to the Mississippi Basin Model in Clinton, MS. I have been to the site several times and I am always amazed at the possibilities of such a device. As an armature the model provides an interesting datum to attach new content. The model is a perfect precedent for the illustrating ecologies course I am currently teaching, a mechanism of simulation which abstracts form in order to accomplish performative goals. An MBM post has been added to the {LAB} site.

My colleague at LSU Kristi Dykema is currently using the site for her undergraduate studio and some research. I am interested to see what the studio and her research tease out of this complex and unique site.
