The following is the construction method for making your own Autonomy Bag. An Autonomy Bag can be used to submit to rules of containment, yet determin...
Roll out brown paper and measure off 138 inches in length. Cut that piece off at a nice perpendicular.
Using your friendship with gravity, fold the length of that piece into even thirds. Make both of the creases fold in the same direction.
Fold each outer third into halves. Once again, make sure the crease direction is following the same direction as the earlier folds.
Make a perpendicular fold at 14 inches off one of the short sides. Fold in the same direction as the other folds.
Turn your focus on the second and fifth sections of sixths, counting from the length-wise side. Let say you are standing at the long edge, and the oth...
Draw lines from those spots, which intersect with the corners of the perpendicular folds and run all the way to the edge of the paper.
Fold these lines in the direction opposite to all the folds.
Now we can begin using these creases to form the paper into a bag-like cube. It is helpful to do this with the short perpedicular fold flush against t...
At this point you should have a pre-folded rectangle of brown paper that resembles this reference sheet. The next step is folding which is a little tr...
Now turn the first side of the bag into a right angle. The diagonal fold (or blue line) will fold under the large flap of leftover length from the per...
Continue to fold the bag sides at right angles. Allow the diagonal folds (again, represented by the blue lines in the reference image) to slip under t...
Once you have folded all four corners, bring the two seams together and tape them in place. During this whold holding and taping process you'll probab...
Carefully hop in the bag with the rubber cement. Begin cementing all of the creases on the interior. Hold it there for a bit to let it dry
Now we have the form. Flip it upside-down and prop it up on some high standing object that fits in it. I used two bar-stools
Spread rubber cement on any exterior creases necessary to add extra strength. Allow the cement to dry.
Fold top of the bag down to one side. This naturally collapses the bag and creates creases on the short ends.
Now bring the flattened bag to a well ventilated area. Lay it flat on a surface and arrange the stencils on the front of the bag to say "autonomy bag....
Lightly spraypaint the letter forms in the stencils and let dry.
There you have it. You and possibly a partner may now experience a makeshift and momentary structure of autonomy in otherwise interpellated constructi...
