MolyXers in Minnesota!

I had a wonderful time in Minnesota over the last few days with Claudio and Marty Harris (our gracious host and the founder of our incredible project). It was a bit surreal meeting these guys for the first time, yet knowing them so well from was much more like seeing old friends rather than people I’d never met in the flesh before.

Talkin’ Moly_X with Marty at MCBA

Last night we had a wonderful Q&A session with Roz Stendhal’s Visual Journal Collective at the Moly_X exhibit at Minnesota Center for Book Arts. The ladies were all very enthusiastic and several have already expressed interest in joining the fun.

Working on Nicole’s book at Marty’s house with Claudio

Sadly I was not able to finish Nicole’s book in time to send it off with Claudio today (Too much fun with ‘The Band’ as Claudio was calling us). But I will get it done before I skip town.

I encourage anyone within driving distance of Minneaopolis to try and stop by the MCBA show before it comes down on March 6th. It’s truly inspiring to see so many of these amazing books up together at once.

Tim's Moly

Here's the link to it on my Flickr page:

I'm happy with Tim's portraits, not too happy with mine.

I'll send this to Heidi tomorrow.

Dana’s moly...complete!?!?!

With the addition of Nicole’s awesome entry, Dana’s book has now reached everyone in the group! It's been to 5 countries, 4 different states and crossed the Atlantic twice! Amazing! (Click to see it MUCH bigger.)

However, by my estimation there's still about 10 blank pages left over. I guess I’m wondering what everyone would like to do now that many of our books are nearing “completion”? We could leave them as they stand and get them back to their owners, or we could recruit some new folks to try to fill every page...we could even send them around to the current members for a second round (maybe not portraits for the second round?). What do you guys think? Dana should definitely get to decide what to do with her book next but I thought it might be good to talk over some options.

Now it goes back to Dana?

Our books so far... (2/11)

Look at all those beautiful people! These books are turning out truly amazing! I just got Nicole’s book in the mail and had to rescan it...the colors are so much more subtle than her original image shows. It's beautiful! I also love the transition she made in Ramires’ book. Very cool.

On a side note the Rochester Contemporary Art Center just recently announced that they’ll once again be doing their 6x6 show. Last year they received 5000 pieces and it made for an amazing show! The deadline for entries is not until May 1st so check it out if you're interested.

I did a little post on last year's show over on my blog as well. And here's a shot of me during last year’s opening; feel free and use it as reference if you like.
