I’m a Park and You’re a Deer
by Amy Franceschini et al.

Paperback, 192 pages

This book began as a discussion on public space with Golden Gate Park serving as a potential site of fieldwork. The park is in a perpetual state of mutation – it is complicated by each of us. Golden Gate Park stands unto itself as a site of pleasure and curiosity as much as it embodies the legal, social, material and symbolic desires that form the city of San Francisco. Battling historical and political narratives, the construction of publics and counter-publics, leisure space and ecology became part of the workshop’s dialogue through collective investigation. This inquiry, as chronicled in this publication, extends beyond San Francisco into an international exploration of parks and public spaces. “I’m A Park And You’re A Deer” is a continuation of this dialogue through diverse formats including: interviews, short fiction, a musical score, essays, photography, and drawings. It is the third book edited by the California College of the Arts Social Practice Workshop.
