An unfortunate turn of events?

It has been nearly a month since we launched our first volley of cameras in downtown Oklahoma City. Sadly, none of our chickens have come home to roost. I have to admit that I am both disappointed and confused. Did people pick up cameras - take photos and then just keep them? Was the US Postal Service to blame? As with any experiment we had a hypothesis - in our case it was that people would find a camera for free, make some photographs, pass the photo's along and mail them to us so that we could post them to share. The whole point is to prove that it is possible to complete an altruistic collaborative art project locally. I still think that is a valid hypothesis and our ideas and intentions are good.

We will just have to go at it again and again....
