A book that feels like it says it
all in just the title
I do ask myself is it about doing something every day or is it about Red?
|A metaphor that might reappear|
Part of my inspiration was from Noah Scalin's book but I also recall artist Nick Pearson talking about how he took the discipline of a task and sent and changed postcards for a year.
I seem to recall a book I've seen about something similar (any one else know the story?) and on a gallery visit a couple of years back we looked at an artist who went out every day to produce something.
So looking forward to how I will explain my 'Leap Year' endeavour I've looked around and tried to find the initial person who started such things - let me know?
There are of course plenty of photo projects in this mould - like this one..
And here's a design one that predates the publication of the Scalin book (which was 2010 I think)
|Keep your eyes open|
Oddly when you hear about and start your own Diary/Project it feels like an easy thing to do but as with a marathon there are various barriers one goes through the half way mark is psychologically a big one (and is well behind me now) but the two thirds mark feels as though I'll never get there.
I would say that like so much stuff it happens when you start doing it and it (probably) means something can be explained in retrospect- more to come!
[Does anyone have an e-mail or postal address for Cildo Campos Meireles who made a work around Red that the Tate has?- do please let me know]
