Weekly Workshop: Bon Voyage

This week's workshop is inspired by the SFMOMA exhibition known as The 1000 Journals Project. Bringing audience participation to a global scale, this project started with blank journals left in various public places, asking finders to fill a page or two and pass it on. The result is an exciting collaboration of different personalities and spirits all living together in one book.

The exhibition runs through April, but I know some of you can't make it to San Francisco to participate. Instead, I challenge you to do the same in your neck of the woods: buy a cheap, blank journal, include a note with instructions in the front, and an address for return in the back, and set it loose. Like a message in a bottle, or tied to the string of a balloon, your adventurous little journal will travel into the unknown. Who will find it? Who will fill the pages? How far will it go? Anticipation is all part of the fun.
