4LW: Submit!

I'd like to ask you to contribute/participate in my latest collaborative-participative-performative what-the-hell-is-it-ART-THANG.

It's SO EASY: send me a list of your favorite four letter words (as many or as few as you want). Yeah, and remember, four letter doesn't have to mean f*ck, sh*t, d*mn, although those certainly are glorious four letter words. Hand, post, June, list, dive, Oslo, chow, poke, and ruff are all perfectly reasonable four letter words as well.

4LW creates rapidly changing text messages based on four letter words submitted by participants. Playful combinations of words are projected in a constantly changing cycle, creating random messages, memorable thoughts, meditative visuals, memsmerizing brain teasers, haiku with hidden meanings, or just plain nonsense.

This project exists in two versions: as a performance/installation and as an online work. The online work is scheduled to launch February 2008. Four letter words submitted by you will be used in the online version, and future performance/installations.

Your four letter words are:





*First Name:
*Last Name:
*Email:
*not required. Your email will not be given to others.
