If you've ever visited SFPC's former space, at the Westbeth Artists Community located in New York City's West Village, you'll remember four large windows in front of the courtyard. This is where you might have peeked into before an event, or stood in front of to take a group picture at the end of your session. Now that the school is operating online, this tote bag serves as an ode to our former space, inspired by those four prominent floor to ceiling windows to memorialize our poetics of relation through a similar black frame which we now peek into through digital screens.
Something tender about those windows is how participants and visitors would graffiti "School for Poetic Computation" on them over the years, refiguring the identity of the school through post-its, hand lettering and hand drawn sketches. Poetic computation is something everyone can participate in, and in a similar vein, the windows on the tote bag displays various definitions of poetic computation as contributed by people in our community.
