Another entry for Journal 17!

Another entry for Journal 17!

The awesome couple who found Journal 17 are not only continuing to write in their Journal but they’re also keeping the digital world updated with the entries. A number of the Journals had digital components to their Inscriptions and I think it’s awesome that Journal 17′s Finders have decided to take their responses/entries down this route too. Every Finder has responded differently, just as every Inscriber wrote something different. This project has such beautiful diversity, it makes my heart sing!j17e_web

Finder Response for Journal 30!

Finder Response for Journal 30!

So as I’ve been dropping the Journals around cultural institutions such as the NGV and the Melbourne and Immigration Museum, I’ve had to do it carefully to avoid staff, security guards and volunteers. But that’s not because I only want the general public to find these Journals, it’s mainly because I don’t want to get busted and escorted from the premises before I’m finished my mission.

And I’ve wondered if any of the Journals have been found by the people who work in the Drop zones. I had hoped that at least one was, because staff are people too and I’d love to make a staffers day just as much as anybody else’s.

Last night, the Finder of Journal 30 posted on the Facebook page and made my nightj30-Finder

Finder response for Journal 2!

Finder response for Journal 2!

jelliA Journal drop goes like this. I find a good place and wait til no one’s around (or in cases f super busy places, when no one’s looking) then I put the Journal down, photograph it with my phone and walk away. As I’m walking away, I upload the photo to the Sharing Ink Facebook page which also loads it up to Twitter. This is to give the best chance for people to see the photo and then go looking for the Journal.

Pretty much the moment I walked away from Journal 2 and loaded the image to Facebook/Twitter, I received this tweet in response. Since Jelli had been in the NGV looking yesterday for a Journal with no luck, it was awesome that she found one today!
