Documentary 1,000 Journals Screens at SMoCA Lounge with Director Q&A

​In August 2000, a San Francisco graphic designer - going by the unassuming handle "Someguy" - left 100 blank journals in random places around the city, just waiting to be found. 

 Soon after, he released 900 more, posting them out one by one to eager participants across the globe. He left a set of instructions in each journal, inviting contribution to what would become a collaborative art project, and urging people to pass the journals on or, when completed, return them so that their contents could be digitized and posted on the project's website. Three years later, one journal came back: #526.
