P ideas

P Some random ideas:

Paint a canvas a day for x days
The Environment – Choices/recycling/where does the trash go/how long does it take to decompose
Textured canvas – Touch it exhibition
An unreadable book (inspired by Bruno Munari)
How many pets are adopted per day and where do they go?
Using food to experience the artwork
Is there a hidden culture of people who put stickers on their cars?
Can I start caring tomorrow? A society of ME
Design the perfect t-shirt for skinny tall men

Here are a few photo sets of what was collected for certain days. One day was a collection of texture in the forest and the other was a collection of chalkboards on the UTK campus. Both sets can be found here:
