Think about what it is that you want to contribute to this project?

 

We're each making some drawings about a memory or a set of memories. That's the work we're doing right now. It might seem thin or not much, but we'll build on it, and we'll share our memories with each other.   This work will become the visual foundation of the tiles we make. It can be abstract or representational and figurative. We will also pull out elements to form designs and patterns.
