Bunny Bombing is the name of a social practice art project to be carried out between December 1-4 (2009) by undergraduate students from the ANTH 305 (Anthropology of Art). No, we are not bombing the bunnies.... Our use of the bunny form in the project is inspired by the iconic and ubiquitous "wild bunnies" that define the communal geography of the UVIC campus; "bombing" references a style of communication through text between students in this community through social media. During the three days of this project over 1000 origami bunnies with question marks on their side will be created and distributed in the MacPherson Library, and other campus buildings. Through the intersection of social practice, net art, and social media, we wish to explore a fundamental aspect of human culture: happiness. We invite you to participate in this project by posting a comment on this blog as a response to the question:
ARE YOU HAPPY?
