No matter how hard I try, I never have enough time to be both a good friend and keep up my studio practice. In an effort to be more efficient I created the piece The Good Friend Project. I sent a mass email to all of my friends asking for their mailing address and birth date. I then made a mold of a real birthday cake and cast enough for everyone who responded. I boxed up one cake per person, and stamped each box with the words DO NOT OPEN UNTIL and then the addressees birthday. Finally, I brought all of the boxes to the post office and sent them all out. Thereby fulfilling my birthday commitments for the entire year.
