So, I received 8 texts from the Cell Everything Experience, to read the participants instructions click here. This was the first text. I can’t guarantee they will all be posted in the order they were received though, and I wish I could get these up faster…but it’s a process, like everything.
This is very exciting. With the 2nd official text from the project the participation improved. Here are Four drawings and below are other texts sent grouped by category.

So I am beginning a texting discourse that starts with some kind of image phrase. Possibly poetic, depending on how you want to interpret it. Then I send it out to about 50 people and see what types of responses I get. For this one I received about 6 replies of varying interest. I then proceeded to draw some of the replies, scanned them and am now posting them to this blog. I am thinking of calling the project DAD (digital/analog/digital) or DADA (digital/Analog/digital/access). Any thoughts?
Here’s the responses:
Erin Texted on January 24th, 2009: Circles, Lines and Squares. It’s a flat architecture with several windows.
Evan sent: Is this a riddle?
Erin texted: In a way, yes.
Evan sent: a blue print?
Tim sent: Diamonds! (by the way, they burn at 800 degrees Celsius)
Nate sent: A Ding-Dong Pattern
Charla sent: Oh I love it!
Romy sent: This is your last leap…Oh evil one!
Kareem sent: Hm. Maybe the windows are for seeing through, for those who hope for dimensionality beyond. Maybe birds hit them.
Enrico sent: It’s not the shapes that compel you, but the spaces in between.
