Subject: Wandering Art Project - the Rules?
Security: Public
So far I have bunnyk, roobarb and ruthi for the Wandering Art Project. Ideally I'd like two more definites to start.

The (prototype) groundrules (some rules are needed for this sort of thing).

1) The purpose of this project is to produce a book which contains writings or drawings from a 'linked' group of people. To join the project you must be seconded by someone already in the project. The reason for this is to avoid the book going missing. (In the first instance, if you can read this post then you are seconded)

2) The book will be tracked at bookcrossing (URL later) - you must record receipt and dispatch of the book there.

3) You must post the book on (or return it to murkee) within one month at the outside, two weeks is expected. One week is better. Contact murkee for the next name on the list.

4) Do not damage the work of others (beware of ink/paint seeping through the pages - if unsure, test on the pages provided for this purpose at the back)

5) You can use up to 2 'spreads' to do essentially anything you want, art, writing, whatever - keep one spread between authors to minimise the risk of damage to others' work if need be - this page could be used to as an intro to your section (take no risks with paint seepage here!) I.e. Three double spreads total (including the 'spacer' spread)

6) Be wary about 'innappropriate' content - - however, we won't pander to the most uptight.

7) You can damage a page as part of your work, but you must not damage the fabric of the book. Pages must not be removed.

8) Pages will be numbered, and people should add their details to the contents page.

9) All entries are made under an appropriate license (advice sought here!)

10) Scan your entry (if possible), place it online if you wish. Send a copy to murkee who will usually post it to murky.org. Images can be hosted on sites such as (but not limited to) flickr. If you don't have a scanner, things can be arranged (e.g. the next person might have a scanner)

11) Add your details into the contents page. post the book on. Update bookcrossing.

12) The book itself remains the property of murkee


Any comments?

(If you want to sign up for the project, please comment!)

Following the lead of the Wandering Moleskine Project...

I wonder if people would be interested in a version of this.

Essentially, I would donate a blank book - which would be mailed to the participants (each one would mail to the next).

They would each have a certain amount of time and a page limit, and they could create whatever they wanted (be it art, writing, whatever).

There would have to be some rules (e.g. no damaging the work of others without permission, no damaging the fabric of the book - damaging one page might be okay!).

Before posting, scans would be made, and published in a central place (as well as copied on the homepage of the creator). All contributions would have to be under some appropriate licence.

It might be fun to see what results!

This would be a 'by invitation/introduction' thing (to avoid the book going astray). The original WMP books have wandered! So it'll be (in the first instance) my LJ friendslist.... as posts get made it would open up to people known to my LJ friends (And so on). We'd keep track of the book using something like Bookcrossing.

I think to be viable there would need to be a handful of folks willing to 'set the scene'. Anyone interested?

This Journal has gone 'friends only'.

That said, I'll be quite liberal about who I add to my friends list. Just ask if you'd like read access, or you (letting me know if I know you in RL, if applicable, would be handy). However, please note that asking doesn't mean getting. In the meantime add me to your friends list and you will see any public posts (rare) and will also automagically see friends posts when I add you in.

I will be operating several groups of friends for various posts, these include, but are not limited to:

'trial basis'
'real life'
'trusted'
'all friends'.

An individual might appear in one or more groups - and they won't know which (the groups are for my convenience). The user will just see whatever posts they have permission to see.

I wonder, is there a way to give someone read permission without my neccesarily having to see their blog on my friend page? (Edit: Now Sorted out)
