The Sandwich Artist gallery is only the first part of the so called Low-Commitment Projects: an artistic concept, created by Brittany Powell and Tae Kitakata, based on a new project every Monday morning of 2012 signed by Brittany and Tae alternatively.
"During art school, our studios were connected by an open doorway. We started as strangers, but for the first (and only) assignment of the two-year program, our instructor paired us together", explain the artists on the project site, "So began a back-and-forth of materials, ideas, and foods. Since school, we’ve both returned to our home states. Hawaii and Oregon aren’t exactly connected by a teletransporter, so it is hard to keep up the co-generation of ideas. That’s where Low-Commitment Projects comes in."
Low-Commitment Projects provide them a chance to share concepts and schemes without a huge outlay of time, energy, or money.
