The mile project is an art piece I started several years ago with the intention of making a single, continuous print one mile long, composed of drawings people give me. The concept began with the crossing of several discrete ideas, including our collective affinity for linear information storage, the notion of the souvenir, an informal survey of where we are as a visually aware culture, a glimpse into the subconscious, and a brief opportunity for folks to express themselves creatively (an encounter by the way which, in my experience, most often generates fear…)
The project has been very well received. It was invited appear at the Virgin Mobile festival and Bumbershoot, and has been covered in print and on the web, including international design publication HOW magazine and the award-winning alt newsweekly SEVEN DAYS.
The current site (which you’re now reading from) has been up for a few months following a catastrophic event, and information is being replaced by hand, so if your drawing has disappeared, fear not, it will be back up soon. Also, new entries, as usual if you include your email address on the card, I will send you a message when your drawing is viewable. If you also include your web site address, facebook page, deviantart profile, or what ever online presence you maintain, I’ll be happy to add that too.
