The Delivery Project
part of The Crow & The Wolf Project in which we distribute mason jars around the country charged with the soil of previous Crow & Wolf interactive installation exhibitions ("Spir*akasha," in San Francisco & "Social Structures," in Oakland as well as soil/ findings from our travels. Taking on the role of traveling time capsules, some have already been planted in, some have words in them, some have seeds, some are blank canvases. The first batch has been distributed in Oregon.
This side project will act as an invitation to people all over the country to become a part of the installation and research project we will be conducting in The Crow & The Wolf Project. YOU, the finder of the jar, are in control of the interaction and its continuation.
If you find a jar or receive one from a friend, there are 3 simple instructions:
1. Nurture it (Add to it, bury something in the jar!, plant in it, take it to parties, eat dinner with it, introduce it to your friends and family, etc). Be creative! These jars will become traveling time capsules of sorts. We anticipate the soil from one state traveling to the other side of the country and the traveling of your nurturing energy to one person to the next.
2. Take a photo of the jar/you with the jar and include the tracking number on the tag (see photo below) in the e-mail and send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be a blog entry for each tracking number. Therefore you can watch where the jar is traveling via our blog.
3. Pass the jar on (leave it in the park, mail it to someone you know or don't know, gift it to a friend)
By staying in touch with us you will be able to see where the jar travels and future recipients. You have total creative control, so have fun, make it yours while you have the jar and pass it on :)
