How to acquire a copy
100 Black Kites is a unique object of which only one (1) exists and thus is available for only one (1) individual. This single copy will be sent out, at the artists expense, to the individual who best expresses why they should be the one to receive it. You may send your arguments to the below email address, making sure to include where you’d like the box sent if your argument proves the most persuasive. If one prefers to keep one’s mailing address exclusive unless one wins that is also acceptable – we shall simply reply to your email with notification that you have been selected upon which you may inform us of where to send the goods. There is no deadline for this, the box will be sent out once the artist is convinced to do so and not before. That is to say he will not just pick from amongst the entries received at a specific time, but will wait for the most compelling regardless of how long that takes. Note that essays aren’t required; a single sentence, if compelling enough, could suffice. That being said timeliness in sending your entry is recommended.

Why not let go from the start?

Mount Eire

“Ten thousand things, all in this breath…” why are people in this world so busy? just for this one breath. They say, “busy, busy, mine mine…”, busy a whole lifetime for “Me”. When this breath is cut off you let go of the whole universe. Why not let go from the start?

from Amongst White Clouds

Suggest the world

Jasper Johns Target with Four Faces (1955, MoMA)

“I’m interested in things which suggest the world rather than express the personality… The most conventional thing, the most ordinary thing – it seems to me that those things can be dealt with without having to judge them; they seem to me to exist as clear facts, not involving aesthetic hierarchy.” -Jasper Johns
