New work

I liked the idea of a long term, public project where we have some kind of seed disperal device, maybe attached to a tiny vehicle that moves a little every day. You could go online and tell it to plant a seed, which would just turn a wheel or something with seeds. It wouldn't have to be very exact, just dump them on the ground or something.
It could be pretty worked soil..and we could just manually move the device every day the length of it, or figure out the entire size of the planting space and divide it by 30 for a month or something.
Anyway, you could go to the site and plant a seed, and then after a while you could see what days people planted. It could be this weird record of the participation...
Either that or it also has roundup in the other wheel, so one would grow and one would kill and then see if anything managed to make it.

Weird idea

Hey, if astrological signs are supposed to result in people that have similar attributes, or personalities, I want to maybe try to test that in some way.
1. have a gathering/meeting where everyone has the same birthday or even within that time on the calendar to fall into their 'sign'

expected outcome: of course people will actually not get along because everyone is different, etc.
harvey outcome: they will all get along.

note: maybe they participate in activities designed to produce conflict.

you need this!

I just saw this guys website, where he promises to send you a picture every day for all of 2008, if you want it.
I like the idea that we have some projects that take an outside participant to activate. Something like this idea, but it doesn't start until someone emails or contacts us about getting one/providing info etc. Then we start the piece. It's kind of like warehousing ideas until they get pulled out of storage, but almost like someone voted on them over the others.
Anyway, it might be a good idea for projects that we don't know where they will go etc.
