|[The Medicine Lake Art Shantys, an almost annual celebration of shantily-clad creation.]|
Dart Shanty – A shanty where people enter and can play darts. Alternatively, a shanty shaped like a dartboard, with another mobile sort of dart-type art object on ice runners which guests can project toward the shanty’s bullseye.
Start Shanty – A space where guests can attempt to build their own shanty out of anything they happen to have on their person. Nobody finishes.
Smart Shanty – A shanty that capitalizes on mobile communications technology to create an emergent adaptive shanty network, uses self-organization and crowd sourcing to create its own art, achieves sentience, and takes over the world (lake) a la Wintermute.
Pull-Apart Shanty – A shanty made from many, many small parts. Each guest takes part of the shanty home with them until the shanty disappears.
Blart Shanty – This makes no sense. “Blart” is not a word.
Quisinart Shanty – A shanty that chops raw food materials into tiny bits when inserted into the doorway. Made from shiny chrome.
K-Mart Shanty – A shanty that somehow demolishes the Lake Street K-Mart.
Fart Shanty – Self explanatory.
