Over It: A Crew of 18 Creatives From Portland and Their Typographical Art Installation

August 16, 2010

In Portland, Oregon, 18 writers, artists, fashion designers, illustrators, and art directors joined forces for Over It. The installation, at Portland State, was an exercise in creative collaboration—with a goal of creating one big, simple message that each person contributes to (click here for more back story).

From the site:

Can 18 disparate Portland artists…get together and work as a singular unit to make art? Probably not. But Chris Hutchinson, Damion Triplett, David Neevel, Jelly Helm studio, Jennie Hayes, Jimm Lasser, Julia Blackburn, Julia Oh, Kate Bingaman-Burt, Marco Kaye, Mike Giepert, Official MFG CO, Portland Foreign Legion, Scrappers, and Taylor Twist got together and tried anyway.

The result is OVER IT, an experiment in creating as a group, letting go, disagreement, misunderstanding, backpedaling and trust.

The result? More than 14 miles of string was used to outline 25 different letters formed from 2,500 eyelet screws. And it really did turn out beautifully.
