one a day

During Open Engagement: Art After Aesthetic Distance a conference/ art project held in Regina Sk. by Jennifer Delos Reyes I organised a project about making permanent connections with strangers. The conference was attended by around one hundred people. I requested that each participant of the conference submit to me an idea for a tattoo. On the final day a local tattoo artist, Nathan Donahoe, gave me the tattoo. Prior to that moment I had not seen any of the submissions and i had to choose the tattoo on the spot. Thankfully a lovely woman named Rachel Ellison submitted the above drawing, and a beautiful reason for getting the tattoo. 'One a Day' is about taking time every day to enjoy something you love.
