A disposable two hours is a collaborative project begun in January 2010.
Part I. Savannah, GA
I gave out 5 disposable cameras along with a letter explaining my intentions to 5 local Savannah residents. The letter asked the recipient to simply go for a walk, to leave from one point and walk for an hour, and at the end of the hour turn around and walk back. They were to be open to any distractions during the walk, and were to use the camera to take at least one photo.
Once the cameras were returned to me, I developed the film and posted it online, as well as displayed it publicly at an open studio in Savannah, Georgia. (Photos of installation above)
Part II. Elsewhere
I sent out disposable cameras with the same letters to people outside of Savannah. If the recipient chose to participate, after receiving the camera I developed the film and again posted the photos online. The first seven participants from outside of Savannah also had their photos displayed in Alexander Hall in Savannah, Georgia.
My desire is that this project would give people an opportunity to partake in an activity that is outside of their normal schedule. I am interested in their experience, and what will happen when they are asked to take a two hour block of time to think of nothing else but looking and walking.
