The reason for AMAP (in progress) or The Art Moving Art Project is to move art (drawings from ’05-’07) out of my studio by engaging visitors in the following ways: I encourage them to touch and handle the drawings, I ask them which one they like, when they say that they like one I simply tell them they can have it. Some people are uneasy with this proposition and insist that we make an exchange of some sort. I generally try to be as accommodating as possible; if paying for it makes them comfortable I let them, if they seem like they want me to talk them into accepting it as a gift, I do that. Whatever the situation the primary design of the project is to move art. The three things I ask of my visitors are; that they allow me to take a photo of them holding their recent acquisition, that I have rights to the photo and can archive it online, and that we keep in touch.
