From Wikipedia: "A gift shop is a store primarily selling souvenirs, memorabilia, and other items relating to a particular topic or theme."
Our theme is what makes Are.na itself: its participants, their ideas, and the worlds they create together. In other words, the gift store is a gradually growing collection of collaborations in the form of real things.
Carl Sagan’s “Diagram of All Space and Time” (1985) on a long-sleeved white t-shirt, available in both adults and kids sizes.
The diagram itself was originally hand-drawn, representing all of space (Y axis) and all of time (X axis). A relatively small box is labeled “Realm of Direct Human Experience,” which lives within a much larger “Realm of Quantum Physics” and “Realm of Special Relativity.” One half of the entire diagram is marked as “OFF LIMITS (Forbidden Zone).”
Edition of 136. Screen printed in Brooklyn by LQQK Studio. Adults sizes (S, M, L, XL) on Comfort Colors. Kids sizes (S, M, L) on Gildan.
This gift is a collaboration between Are.na and Damon Zucconi.
