Here is a good idea for a cloudy rainy 40 degree day. Specific Things is looking for submissions of images and stories. It was funded by Josh Greene's project called Service-Works in which he, as a curator, donates one month of his wages from his fine-dining waiter job to someone who has won a grant from him to do a project. And the projects are good. Varied, but the way they fit together is terrific.
The idea is interesting and reminds me of when I went to Berlin and realized there was not one photo I could take that hadn't been taken. And original ones I could take with ME in them can be broken down into categories that remind me that everything I do may seem unique, but all the urges come from the same animal..
