For the project 17.(SEPT) [By WeistSiréPC]™, American artist Julia Weist and Cuban artist Nestor Siré explore and intervene in El Paquete Semanal or “the weekly package,” a cultural and economic phenomenon that developed in Cuba in place of internet connectivity, in which a 1 terabyte digital media collection is aggregated weekly and circulated across the country via in-person file sharing. Take part in the system: Every third Sunday of the month from 2-5pm a paquetera, or Paquete agent/guide, will be available to guide visitors through downloadable content that they can take home. #JuliaWeist#NestorSire#ElPaqueteSemanal
