1000 Journals

Last mentioned in the July 9, 2004 Scout Report, 1000 Journals is a Museum 2.0 project (where the audience participates in as well as views the project) from SFMOMA. Organized by Someguy, a San Francisco-based artist and designer, 1000 journals were circulated beginning in August of 2000, initially only to people who asked for them, these people then added something to the journal - writing, painting, photographs - and then sent them on. Journals were also left in public places such as bars, cafes, and on park benches, and later a sign up function was added to the project so journals went from person to person on a list. The online exhibition features page spreads from 235 journals, as well as covers from roughly 25. There is also a book and a movie about the project, and links to purchase the book or to find out when and where screenings of the movie are scheduled can be found here as well.
