#projectcollaborate2022: One afternoon at the end of May 2022, I had this idea of sending out a photograph I had made and a paper substrate to 25 random strangers and have them create something with it. I start it. They finish it. All the pieces would be joined together as a paper quilt, of sorts, to show what people can do together when they don't discuss it beforehand. I had no idea if anyone would want to play. In less than 48 hours I had 20 players - 2 days later, all slots were filled. In June, the packages were mailed out. Now, in August, they are trickling back in. Wow. Participants from all over the US and Canada. I am honored and amazed. It seems it isn't just me who needed some connected creative play... In this space, I will show the works, front and back, as well as the collection mounted together. There will also be a pdf book of the entire project including snippets of conversations regarding our respective experiences with it. Come back often to see how this is emerging. For now, I'll keep the returned works quiet until I get them all back. I don't want to influence someone's creative response if they haven't completed theirs yet. But, if you want a sneek peek, use #projectcollaborate2022 on Instagram to see what we are up to.
