“We were all creative people and now we go to work every day and sit in traffic. So what happened?” This is the question that SomeGuy set out to answer with his collaborative art project 1000 Journals.
In the year 2000, a total of 1000 journals were left on park benches, in coffee shops and other random places with the instruction to add something and pass along. Of the journals that have been returned, they have traveled to over 40 countries and all 50 states. The results have been captured on film, on YouTube, in a museum exhibit at SFMoma (runs until April 5, 2009) and now in this book, published by Chronicle Books.
