When a wealthy eccentric bequeaths her entire fortune to the school, administrators are left scrambling to fulfill the strange stipulations of her dying wishes. “Honorande X,” the papers claim, was a lifelong enthusiast of the transitional & telepatent arts. X’s abstruse will & testament indicate that her “coffers should mimic [her] coffin” by converting the institutional body into "disuse" whereby it might proffer something “more immediate, more sensual.” Flummoxed by these statements & pressured by X's attorneys, the school decides to host another version of itself inside itself. For 1 day, it will become a waste treatment fragility, a conferential deformation of learning & sharing & learning again. DUMP CAMP is actual conjecture, present & otherwise."--Bethany Ides & Ari Ferdman copy_op2.jpg copy.jpg copy.jpg copy.jpg
