2020 Year Long Project [Working Title]

The 2020 Year Long Project [Working Title] is a 366 day endeavor that involves writing, drawing, painting, poetry and photography

– a compilation of life in it’s minutia – a daily muse of present focus – a divergence from perfection

– an allowance of full exploration in five major parts:

#1

PHOTOGRAPHS: Working with my 35mm manual film camera, I am shooting in B&W T-max 400 film
**Each day I take a self portrait, rediscovering spaces and self daily and shooting ‘blindly’ with an extended shutter release cord, unable to see the result of the previous photographs.

#2

SKETCHBOOKS: I fabricated sketchbooks for each month, with the exact amount of pages
**Each day I use drawing materials (no paint) to express shapes I’ve seen or thought about, keeping the past pages contained and out of sight.

#3

LETTERS: Writing everyday in my journal, future letters to myself
**Each day I write freely with no plan or requirements of subject or length, and then seal each day’s letter into an envelope, isolated to be read at the end of the year.

#4

BUILDING- I built 366 stretcher frames for 10”x6” paintings (objects) using all my scrap fabric
**Each day I approach the surface with visual ideas and feelings from my day, without referencing past pieces.

#5

POETRY: Re-purposing books with black-out poetry
**Everyday I create poetry with existing words on the pages of the books I own. It all started with a tiny book I found in the local tiny library. The only rule: it has to be books I’ve read.
