Sasha sez:

Skydive is pleased to announce a call for entries for a project that is featured in Skydive's current exhibition, Sisyphus Office. Skydive, in collaboration with artist Elysa Lozano, has opened the Skydive Office of Cultural Affairs and put out a call for proposals for projects to be exhibited in 2010.
Please forward to all interested parties.

Whereas an investigation has shown that during the Republic of Texas Archive War, one box of records was lost when the archives were violently seized by an armed militia- in all the boxes that remained, there was no record of who owned the land that this very building stands on; it was originally deeded to Benjamin Lovell and John Purnell for the purpose of starting a Socialist colony, before the land was sold. With the official record for the transfer lost, the new owners had no choice but to reclaim their property through adverse possession; however legally the terms of the original deed take precedent.

Now, the Skydive Office of Cultural Affairs offers the possibility afforded by this clerical mishap to the people of Houston and beyond. The Office has been founded to advertise this opportunity to the public and to assist interested parties in developing proposals to bring the original intention of this land to fruition to convert this building into a socialist colony.
