Friday Teardrop Photo

The Ghana Think Tank teardrop trailer at the Queens Museum in New York. 

From the Ghana Think Tank website:

The Ghana ThinkTank in Corona involves a custom-built teardrop trailer designed to journey into different communities in the “First” world, collecting community (and personal) issues and sending them to think tanks in Ghana, Cuba, El Salvador, Mexico, Serbia, Iran, Afghanistan, and on…
Once we receive the solutions, our trailer rolls back into the communities, this time as a mobile workstation, so that we can implement their solutions, whether they strike us as brilliant or impractical…
It’s become a way to explore the friction caused by solutions that are generated in one context and applied elsewhere, while revealing the hidden assumptions that govern cross-cultural interactions.
See more of this cool, standy teardrop on their Flickr page.
