Miranda July and Harrel Fletcher’s ‘Learning to Love You More’ project has only just come onto my radar and I couldn’t have been more engaged by it if I’d tried.
A lovely idea of setting simple tasks for the general public to carry out and record. The real genius however is in the wording and breadth of the tasks, ranging from the pictured ‘Make an encouraging banner’ to ‘Take a photo of your parents kissing’ it’s the kind of catalogue of images that you could get lost in for hours.
Everything’s documented online but you can also buy a book documenting some of the best ‘reports’ from Miranda’s website here
