What are they?

These are little worlds in Matchboxes. They are free pocket art to be shared. On the back of each box is a text like this:

“I am free art to be shared. If you have me, keep me for 7 days. During that time, please send the artist an email to her website stating who I am (#), where you are with me and the dates you have me (photos too). After 7 days please give me to another person.

私は自由な芸術です。私を7日間保管してください。その間、アーティストに私のタイトルき、あなたの住んでいる場所、私がいた期間(写真)をメールで送ってください。 7日後、他の人に私を渡してください。私は共有されるポケットアートです。

Mission

This project is based on the idea that art should not be owned, but shared. Like music is free to hear, it would be wonderful if all art were available to view for free. Unfortunately we live in a society where we need to pay for things like food and rent, and therefore we need to earn money. This art is based on donations.

 

If you have received a matchbox, during this time you are to register on this site where you are and either mail me a photo of you and the matchbox or the matchbox in a place you like to be. I will create a map with the information you send me so that you will be able to follow your temporary art as it travels through space and time. It will be regularly updated.

 

**If you can donate to this project, or would like to send me something instead of money, let me know per email and we will work out the details. >contact/register matchbox here!<
