This stringed typography was an experiment in collaboration between no less than eighteen Portland creatives for a 2010 show called OVER IT.
Can 18 disparate Portland artists, writers, designers, art directors, fashion designers and illustrators 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.
