About the Project
This moleskin sketchbook is part of AtWork project. It starts from a collection of “art notebooks”, unique works of art created in Moleskine notebooks by different artists. AtWork is a platform that starts with an online exhibition, featuring notebooks donated by various authors/ artists. The aim is to imagine a new way to think of exhibitions, to focus on the process of art and design where ideas are taking forms and developed rather than the end result.
AtWork allows the artworks to circulate with a new free and shared user licence (CC BY-SA), while experimenting with new touring exhibition formats, promoting critical debate in various art contexts and organizing workshops with local communities.
Adapting the notion of "gathering point" as a main theme for the project; I have chosen my gathering point to be the sketchbook itself; where everyone is linked and connected to everyone else. The process which started with interviewing people and writing some stories where every page represent 10 years of their lives helped me to understand how people summarize themselves to a stranger and in a short time. The pages for each person are then stitched and linked to someone else’s page showing how physically can be attached together through common things.
