How Long Will It Last?



The advisor of my school’s literary magazine assigned me and a few friends to post up some posters announcing the first meeting next week.  The five of us split the huge stack of posters, and I decided with the one who went with me to be extremely creative with how we posted them up.  There’s only so much you can do with what’s actually on the paper, so we had to take the next step and be creative with hanging them up.  Literally.


We tried a variety of ways that differed from the normal way of hanging them up.  We tried different angles with a couple that were completely upside-down.  We thought of being obnoxious with the posters by putting a bunch of them on one wall.  We also tried the 3D approach, which involves taping the posters on the wall in a way that will make a part of the poster bulge out.

But I’ve tries these before.  I wanted to go a step further.  I taped the corners of several posters and tried to make banners that hung in the air.  We did that a few times.  We thought that was crazy until we thought of this next idea.  We taped two posters back-to-back and attached it to a “string” made of folded masking tape.  Then, we hung it in one of the staircases.  If that doesn’t catch anyone’s attention, then we weren’t crazy enough.

Sadly, I discovered some time after that some of our banners were taken down, most probably by the custodians.  They don’t appreciate art!

Hopefully, the posters on the string will last until the students actually see them.
