This Wikispace is a hub for communication about ideas and experiences with the "natural" worlds of Illinois and beyond.

Please use the links to the left to explore the various resources and documentation of events associated with this process of "Unpacking" our relationship to nature and "Offsetting" our negative consumption of materials and energies with more positive activities such as driving less or recycling more.

Unpacked/Offset was a "solo" exhibition of work by Gabriel Bizen Akagawa that included collaborations with students, faculty, and artists of all kinds from Northern Illinois University and surrounding communities in Dekalb, Illinois.
Unpacked/Offset was in the Rotunda Gallery at Northern Illinois University from March 25 through May 10, 2008.
Crate Space is an interactive site for Artists and Art Students of that community to collaborate on the Crate Project.
The Crate project is one part of many parts of this exhibition.
Crate Space is an web log that documents the generative first crates used as a call for artists' proposals.

Thank you for your interest in this project,
Gabriel Akagawa
