Organizational Strategies for the After Life

Design 99

Organizational Strategies for the After Life is a collaborative project by Gina Reichert and Mitch Cope, the husband and wife team formerly known as Design 99. Reichert and Cope have been working in their Detroit neighborhood for six years, collecting a warehouse full of objects left behind by former neighbors and their predecessors. With the assistance of several spirit beings, such as Mischievous Cleaners, Kitchen Dwellers and The Vacationers, the artists have processed and transformed the found objects into a series of sculptures, videos, drawings and paintings.
