In this "blogging age," where anyone's art can spread from one country to the next in seconds, the idea of writing letters or spreading art through the mail- a much more personal and tangible experience- seems like a thing of the past. The 1000 Journals Project is an ongoing, collaborative global art project that began in San Francisco in 2000, when 100 journals were released into the world- left at bars and cafe's, and distributed to the founder's friends. 10 years and 1000 journals later, the project has evolved into a documentary and a book, and now, an exhibit at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles. This global project is open to all willing to participate; check out how to get involved on 1001 Journals.
