The Plan

Hello dear participants,

Thank you for your interest in this exchange and your contributions of intriguing images and ideas. The plan is as follows:

1. Select an image from those compiled on this blog. (I encourage you to select photos from someone at a different school.)

2.Comment on your chosen photo so people know it has been selected.

3.Plan your edition using your chosen image as an influence. (You could use the image directly, extract a concept from it, draw from it, etc.)

4.Make your editioned prints.

The medium and paper choice are open. The size is 11 x 14 inches. The edition size is 25.

The cost is $25. Please mail your prints and check by February 1, 2010 to:

Sara Marie Miller
University of Tennessee
School of Art
1715 Volunteer Boulevard
Knoxville, TN 37996

The prints will be returned to you in portfolio boxes with a letterpressed colophon.
I am planning to redistribute them at SGC in hopes that we can all meet and get a beverage together in Philly!

Sara Marie

When this 75 foot deep sinkhole spontaneously opened in Missouri some years ago, it swallowed a garage and a 2001 Chevy Cavalier. There is no clear moral to this story.

(I would like to use this photo, but can't work the comments thing right now... ok? ok. ~Kt)

Smallpox & Stetson

Hello all! This image is one I drew for a zine exchange the bookmaking class at UT did last semester. The theme was "Cowboys & Indians." Felt like that topic/this image could relate to our portfolio. Hope it's o.k. that I'm using an image from a past exchange....let me know if not.

This is a bit literal in terms of the exchange, but a starting point. It is a ship that crashed into the Oregon Coast in the 1920's. Also, the deadline for the completed prints is February 1, 2010.

Get that ball rolling...

Wikipedia-- the Lord bless it-- describes the Exquisite Corpse as "...a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled, the result being known as the exquisite corpse...Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, either by following a rule (e.g. "The adjective noun adverb verb the adjective noun") or by being allowed to see the end of what the previous person contributed."

I don't think we need to adhere to a strict format, but our print exchange seems a variation on the Surrealist parlor game.

And now there's a post up.
