The Museum for Missing Places is an attempt to chart the shifting terrain of a city - Houston, Texas - through a process as fleeting as the city itself.

Using interactive, dialogue-based exhibits, the Museum proposes alternative ways of mapping a city in the context of rapid and unregulated urban change and the uncertainty of enduring architectural landmarks.

As a museum in the traditional sense, this project is about gathering, ordering and exhibiting information in various mediums and formats. What distinguishes the information of this museum is its specificity to Houston's elusive urbanism and that it's gathered through an expanding body of public surveys designed by the Museum and situated in Houston's public places.

FRUIT takes up the challenge of elevating the ecological knowledge of consumers and encouraging a way of life that is friendly to the environment. We want consumers to be conscious of the entire life of a product, from production to utilization, and not just what they see in the stores. Consumers must be aware that every phase of a product's life influences the environment and ourselves.

Free Soil has produced a run of FRUIT wrappers, a website, and a traveling installation as part of an initiative to inform people about alternative food systems and local food movements. The wrappers are disseminated throughout the food chain by piggybacking on oranges. Information will be carried through the food system and into the hands of consumers. The wrapper holds information on a variety of aspects concerning food movements, transport and urban farming. Get your daily dose!
