New Street Agenda
Various international cities
and countries
2005-2013

Notes:
New Street Agenda is the third project in a series of investigations that test one’s understanding of street-level communication and how a simple gesture sometimes functions in today’s rapidly changing world. An edition of 7 artworks have been produced and placed in the public domain (e.g., city parks and communal areas) for the casual passerby to find, keep and respond to. These artworks are accompanied with a letter and information on the project written in English and the predominant local language of the city visited. Each city receives 7 different artworks from the editions.

Including the initial two projects, Searching for Geomantrick (1998) and Appleseed International (1999-2004), I have placed over 560 artworks in over 70 different cities within the U.S. and abroad. These projects are intended to function as an aesthetic social experiment rooted in the spirit of the Midwestern American legend Johnny Appleseed (aka John Chapman, 1774-1845). In addition to depositing the artworks, I document the travel via drawings, photography, video, writings, and translation of finder’s response.
