"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."
