Introducing 365 Jars

Categories Crazy Ass Projects

Despite still being down with what appears to be Swine Flu, I managed to get out of the house today to start a new year-long art project.

365 Jars is a daily walking project. Every day during 2011, I will be taking a walk to release an art jar into the wild. People will be able to collect the jars and register that they’ve found them on the website, it will be interesting to see if anyone does. For those of you who don’t live in Bristol (or anywhere I happen to visit during 2011), you can follow along on the project website.

I am an artist & purveyor of obsessive projects based in Hebden Bridge, England. My work involves the accretion of large numbers of small objects - pins in fabric, knots in string or hundreds of envelopes - to make sculptures that deal with fragility, loss, repetition, obsession and time.

  1. Hello!
    I found jar No.49!
    What a nice idea and great way to network. I would like to keep the jar so I can show my friends and will then probably use it for a chutney or something….who knows.

    Thanks, Fergus.
