"Sponge is an experience in total immersion.  During each of the four "absorb-a-thon" days one theme will be investigated in depth.  The workshop will string together reef ecology, Mongolian craft, art & industry, and the notion of utopia.  You will see four films (maybe 5), go on two field trips (one to an aquarium and one to a museum), make a pair of wool-felt shoes, and read at least one manifesto.  In keeping with the model of sponge reproduction, you will leave the workshop prepared to lead a Sponge of your own."
