From Carl Heyward founder of Global Art Project:
Global Art Project
the fragments, the raw materials that might become elements of mixed-media collages or paintings…torn found papers, billboard-tears, fabric, found shopping lists, photos and negatives, discarded canvas and throw-away’s that are given new life by another artist who incorporates these raw materials into something new; a way to collaborate via the mail and internet as well as in-person…
mixed-media work derived from the exchange between members of Global Art Project; relinquishing responsibility or ownership going beyond the original intention of an image or idea broken down into fragments ( frags) resulting in a deconstruction, a re-ordering of the visual universe into new ways of seeing…one of the most significant examples of this practice is the giant Dada quilt GAP created assembled by Akiko Suzuki in Osaka and San Francisco in 2016 for the SF International Arts Festival’s “dada here and now” exhibition curated by Carl Heyward, Matthew McKinley and Hanna Regev titled The Mystery of Love, Anger and Delusion ( soap-bubbles), a 3.5 ‘ x 32 ‘ work derived from over 2,000 frags from the international membership.
