ARE YOU READY FOR THE NEXT 100 DAYS?

100 Days Project. © Mahani Del Borrello 2017. Thousands of hours of fun, frustration and hard work were celebrated on the weekend, as creatives from all walks of life came together to show their 100 Day Projects in Auckland.

From photography to typography; felt to food art; digital art to dolly pegs; pop-ups to plastic; and about every kind of pen, pencil and paintbrush you can imagine—this exhibition had it all! The one thing they had in common was the commitment to create one thing every day for 100 days. The range of projects, level of skill and dedication on display was astounding. And while this short but sweet show may be over, there isn't much time to relax, registrations for the 2017 100 Days Project have opened! So if you like the sound of this project, it's time to sign up and start planning. Remember, one thing, every day, x100.

Good luck!

DAY 100 SHOW

The Day 100 Show is almost here!

Some of you have been following my journey on the 100 Days Project. Well now is your chance to see what over one hundred other 100 Dayers got up to, at a pop-up exhibition in Auckland!

The Day 100 Show is a pop-up exhibition celebrating this most excellent (albeit ruthless) creative marathon of sorts. Late last year over 1,400 people from all over the world embarked on the project, committing themselves to complete one creative 'thing' a day for a hundred days without break. The results were often wonderful, strange and delightful. No two 'hundred days' are alike.

Join us at the Auckland Day 100 Show

6 – 10pm Saturday 25 Feb 10 – 4pm Sunday 26 Feb Thievery Studios Level 2, 203 Karangahape Rd Auckland

RSVP to our event on Facebook here.

Thanks to Thievery Studios, and our sponsors for helping make the Day 100 Shows possible!

SCULPTURES ON THE GULF

A last minute getaway, to Waiheke Island off the coast of Auckland, happily coincided with the biennial art event headland Sculpture on the Gulf.

Having been a regular visitor to Sculpture by the Sea in Sydney and Perth, I was excited to see the New Zealand equivalent. After an indulgent day of eating and drinking at one of Waiheke's many wineries, an evening stroll along the stunning coastline admiring these wonderful works of art was the perfect end to a beautiful day.

These are just some of the sculptures, hSGOTG is on until February 19, so if you happen to be in or around Auckland it is definitely worth jumping on the ferry and taking the short trip across the gulf to see this awesome event for yourself.

The idea is this, create one thing, every day for 100 days and document it. Your project can be as simple or as complex as you like, just keep in mind you will be doing it for the next 100 days!

Past projects have included animation, beading, collage, crochet, gifs, illustration, music composition, painting, photography, poetry, printmaking, sculpture, sewing, tattoos and typography! You can find more inspiration and information at the link above.

So how about? Are you ready to get creative?

Registration is open until the 20th of August, 2016.
