5 + 11 Superteam confirms rumors of "trash" theme
"We're trying to distance ourselves from the word 'trash'"
The maelstrom of speculation swirling around the nascent, reclusive “Superteam” 5+11 has concluded with public confirmation of a “Found Objects” theme to guide further work. Rumors began with sightings of Professor Iliescu gathering trash along Ivy Road. Late in the evening of January 15th the sightings had been confirmed as legitimate and the new direction made official.
The incipient concept has since blossomed into a mature framework by which The Superteam plans to examine and illustrate the site. “Trash is data; Trash is research” guides an approach to site-research described by insiders as “archaeological.”
Initial reports indicate a plethora of “genderable, blue-collar” artifacts have been discovered on the most superficial strata. As of press time, reports are being heard of “more exciting” discoveries unearthed as excavation continues.
A detachment of students--including veterans Amanda Goodman (M.LA ’16) and Meg Baldwin (M.LA ‘15)--had been seen fleeing Campbell Hall on foot in the direction of Ivy Road earlier in the day. Eyewitnesses who have asked to remain anonymous have alleged the intent of the detachment was intelligence gathering and propaganda dissemination.
Critics of the new direction have called into question the logistical implications of such a framework, particularly after the shake-up that occurred early in the competition. However reports from inside the organization have been largely positive. Images of a “charrette” have been smuggled out of the inner circle, and will be published in subsequent posts by this publication.
