Field Trip to Staten Island


A bit of roommate bonding this week with a trip to Staten Island. We set out with the intention of making something about our field trip, but the tone of the excursion was set at the library near the ferry terminal, where a librarian humored our questions about the borough. "What's your favorite place on Staten Island?" Willie asked. "My house," the man said.

We settled for Fort Wadsworth, and took the hour walk down along the island. The zine full of exciting insights and tidbits from the field trip never materialized (due largely to lack of 'exciting' things encountered), but the excursion did inspire me to make a few small collages with found text about the history of field trips, and content collected on our own.
