Gearing up to start the 2012 Rhodia Journal Swap!

Stephanie

It’s happening!!!

I am putting together the final details surrounding the 2012 Rhodia Journal Swap and expect to start searching for our 12 participants sometime next week. If you haven’t heard about the swap, we are going to be providing 12 large dotWebbie journals to a dozen creative people to utilize for a few weeks at a time, who will then mail the book on to the next person, and so on, until it reaches the last person who in turn, mails it back to the person who started that book.

The dozen participants will be sharing their creativity via a group Tumblr Blog for us all to see.

You do not have to be an “artist” or a “writer” to participate, You should however, be creative and willing to share. This swap will be open to US residents age 18 or older. An international swap may happen at a later date.

More details, including the *Theme* of the swap, to be announced soon!

    I was counting on them coming to rest in a central location, a library, if you will.
    There are several models for this activity going way back to the exquisite corpse novel and poem. Many of the better collaboratirve and participatory works would have been lost if not remanded to a conservator.
    Humble suggestion: when the notebook finishes its circuit, the owner might or might not ask Rhodia Drive to send a prepaid envelope. Clairefontaine would then scan them carefully, mounts the images on a consistently formatted site, puts the originals in archival boxes on a shelf along with the Ark of the Covenant and prepares for the next adventure.
