This is a swap inspired by the art of the lovely Keri Smith http://www.kerismith.com/

I'm a big fan of her art and words. On her website you can find a list of 100 ideas to inspire and stimulate your artistic endeavours http://www.kerismith.com/funstuff/100ideas.htm

This swap is a challenge - pick at least five of these ideas, execute them over a two month period and document the process.

Then share the results in a form that can be seen by EVERYONE ELSE on the swap list - i.e. electronically. Flickr set, website, PDF, ZIP file, Word file... anyone have other suggestions? Send these to me. In the meantime, send a link or file or whatever to your official swap partner. This will ensure everyone gets rated for their efforts.

The idea is to share the results of your experimentation with everyone. I know it says 1 swap partner, but I think it would be better if we can share our creativity with everyone else!

Since this is going to be largely an online swap, plus the fact that everyone is sharing with everyone, I will be lenient with the ratings needed, types of swaps in the past etc. However, if I see any questionable swappers at the time of assigning partners, I will ban them. I want to maximize the awesomeness of the swap by having as many people share as possible! If you have any concerns about the swap or swappers, please let me know!

  • 06 Dec 2007 I have created a Flickr group http://www.flickr.com/groups/swapbot-100ideas/

  • 12 Dec 2007 The start date has been moved closer - just thought it was silly to have it so far in the future when really it's a swap that can be completed whenever! Just upload your pics to the Flickr group whenever you can, or send them to me and I can upload them.

I am assuming that if do a mini-website or photos we can send the swap electronically?

teresa 12/ 3/2007 #

Yes that might be a problem for people who are sending something concrete. I was thinking of making a book... how about I change the instructions to "a form that can be shared with everyone else in the swap"?

E.g. Flickr set, website, pdf, zip file, Word file...?

I will email you all

Simone 12/ 3/2007 #

Great - I am looking forward to it

This is a great idea for a swap & Keri's art is very interesting. (This is just a suggestion).......Maybe a Flickr group could be started for this swap and then everyone can post the images of their work in one place for all of us to view., or for those that don't have/want a Flickr account the host can post them for you.

teresa 12/ 5/2007 #

That's a great idea - nice and easy, and we'll end up with everything in the same place. Thanks for the suggestion! Will post the link soon

Here it is http://www.flickr.com/groups/swapbot-100ideas/

I've gone ahead and added those of you on Flickr as a contact :) It's an open group, so anyone can join

Otherwise, if you don't want to join up to Flickr I can just collect all your photos/images you want in the swap and upload them

I think this is one of the most wonderful swap ideas I've seen in a while. I'm super excited for this one--thanks for starting it!!!

I forgot to mention that I got the idea from brokenmelody's "10 Things I Would Like To Do Everyday" swap! http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/9513

Here is my work in progress

Comments and suggestions welcomed. Completed 3 of the 5 tasks so far. Actually planning of doing 6.

Technically I have read a book a day this week but not sure how to present that.

Here is my attempt at a website: http://simonesbutterfly.synthasite.com/

teresa 12/17/2007 #

That is so, so cool

This sounds brilliant. I hope it comes around again some time when I am not so busy. Happy New Year.

Simone 12/29/2007 #

Nice to see more people joining up. I have just got one more task to do.

Simone 01/ 4/2008 #

I am catching the 100 ideas fever.

Came across a brilliant article and decided to start a swap on it. http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/10393

sofia 01/31/2008 #

I made a blog on my website to share it with you. http://100ideas.sugarspinsister.com/ And if anyone is interested in having something similar but doesn't know how to make one, let me know. I can put up a few more, I have lots of extra space on my domain and this one was very simple to make and use!

anwyn 02/22/2008 #

I cant wait to see everyone's stuff! I'm having trouble with my scanner so I'm headed over to my father in laws house to abuse, I mean USE, his scanner. ;)

brokenmelody 03/30/2008 #

I'm having trouble with the scanner, I hope to have it resolved by tomorrow. If not it might be a few days. I understand if I get rated down for lateness.
