This Spring, Love You More
Learning to Love You More is an ongoing web-based project by artists Miranda July and Harrell Fletcher. The concept is this: The two West coast-based American artists post assignments on the Learning to Love You More webpage. Anyone can accept these assignments, and, once completed, submit the artwork which is the end result to the online site. The site is currently maintained by Yuri Ono, a designer for Odopod. The collection is ongoing, and is an “ever-changing series of exhibitions, screenings and radio broadcasts,” as well as a very contemporary and accessible concept. Learning to Love You More has been up and running since 2002, and over 8000 people have participated in the project. The underlying theme of all of the assignments is simple: follow their specific directions, and through them, you will learn something about yourself. Everybody wins.
