FOR MOST PEOPLE, PRACTICAL HOVERCRAFT are large water-borne vessels carrying hundreds of people across European waterways (like the English Channel) at high speeds, or Marine Corps equipment carriers that can discharge troops in vehicles the second they land on the beach (like those based at Camp Pendleton, on the coast north of San Diego County). They seem to work OK when they are big, heavily powered, and headed in a relatively straight line.

TRAVELING UPSTREAM, ONE GETS CLOSER to the source, both literally and metaphorically. 300 river miles from Lake Itasca, the source of America’s river, the Mississippi, Minneapolis is in a way the city furthest upstream on the American land. A quick look at the corporate headquarters of this city is an interesting and illuminating reflection of some of the sources of contemporary American culture and economics.

Partnerships with other institutions enable CLUI-generated exhibits to be born or to acquire additional lives, traveling around to different places. Some recent CLUI exhibits include work generated specifically for presentation “elsewhere,” others incorporate existing work in new contexts, in each case they make CLUI projects available to new, and often larger, audiences. Here are some CLUI exhibits, displayed at non-CLUI venues, over the last year.
