For this week, November 24th through the 30th (wow! I can’t believe it’s almost December already!), I challenge you to create small pieces of art and leave them somewhere anonymously. In a cafe, bookstore, or your neighbors’ doorsteps.
Here are some ideas to get you going:
Here’s a tutorial if you’ve never origami-ed before:
“To me, making a tape is like writing a letter. There’s a lot of erasing and rethinking and starting again. A good compilation tape, like breaking up, is hard to do. You’ve got to kick off with a corker, to hold the attention (I started with “Got to Get You Off My Mind,” but then realized that she might not get any further than track one, side one if I delivered what she wanted straightaway, so I buried it in the middle of side two), and then you’ve got to up it a notch, or cool it a notch, and you can’t have white music and black music together, unless the white music sounds like black music, and you can’t have two tracks by the same artist side by side, unless you’ve done the whole thing in pairs and…oh, there are loads of rules.”
Whatever you want to do, take a photo, video, or record some audio of it before you leave it. Sneakily and anonymously please (it’s more fun that way). And then send me an email with a link to your project. The deadline is Sunday, November 30th, by midnight.
