today to the gallery. Jan, Power and Erland introduced our project from the start and what's going on...so glad that actually this project is getting much clearer and clearer although its still in the process of "chaos". she seemed very excited about our process. im sure she will come and see again. also she will lodge three of our posses in her office near Art sonje.

New artists come to see us and become involved in the project all the time and every time we talk about the project the project evolves and changes slightly, although we are now kind of starting to say the same things all over again: "chaos", "interference", "unfinished", "new structure", "experiment", "letting go of the concept of a masterpiece", "creating something different", "letting go of hierarchies"... However, for some reasons the project seems to be appealing for the newbies (I've become a good seller of the project too by now, since I also feel enthusiasm about it) and we are constantly growing in different directions. It is exciting of course, but also a bit scary - where will we end? Will we manage to keep everyone involved happy and not disappointed in any way? There is responsibilities involved of course, and how will we be able to keep it up in this "powerless structure"?
Jan, aka Jack, came back to the gallery today after one day's rest from the project and retained stability for us here. I'm still curious who will turn into Sawyer to follow up on the "Lost-connotations". Erlend took on the role of carpenter today and I guess that turns him into the architect Michael or something? Myself, I'm eating a lot all the time and am not really contributing creatively but try to keep the social framework easy, and that kind of turns me into Hurley.
Rejoice, gentle readers! After hitting some kind of comfortzone-low, spending the night sleeping on, respectively, the gallery floor and the roof, Bjørn and I have just booked ourselves into a hotel for the remaining nights before our Marriot booking later this week. This should mean that we will actually be energized in the mornings, and we should be able to focus more of that energy on, like, you know, the actual project.
Right now we are having a visit from Jun Ho Kwon who is being shown the blog by Jooyoung. He's going to be in the show, and you can all check his website here. Jun Ho went to school at Virginia Commonwealth and UCLA and is doing really nice work. Someone, perhaps someone whose gallery contains a weird diftong, might want to look into his work for a possible show.
