1000 Miles is the culmination of a 100 day performance project Jason Jaworski created in collaboration with MOCAtv where every day he threw a dart at a map of Los Angeles, traced a 10 mile shape and proceeded to traverse its geometry. Dressed in a uniform of all white, each 10 mile journey was documented in a series of images, texts and line paintings. This publication is the first of 10 the artist made during the project. Each book represents 100 miles of the 1,000 mile journey.
A ten volume zine set, as well as a dual folio publication involving the project was put out by SSK Press in 2013 and 2014. The original zines themselves were featured in the 2015 edition of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) New Photography exhibition as part of Lele Saveri's The Newsstand installation, as well as being highlighted in the Skira Rizzoli book of the same name.
A meditation and inspiration for so many, walking has in it a contradictory complexity, in that it is one of the easiest and most simple forms of movement, yet it allows for a near unequaled depth and sense of feeling from an environment.
From here on forward, for 100 days, I will be dedicating myself to that form of motion and to my working mediums of environment, time, place, thought and memory- walking 10 miles a day, for 100 days, for a cumulative 1,000 miles.
Routes are loose, but will adhere softly to the pre-planned shapes, symbols and portions of whatever sacred geometry I have been able to find while studying the maps and streets of Los Angeles for the past year.
