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 fifth 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.
The day ended and I kept thinking of things to say, things to tell you, but all I could think of were things that had already happened. The past as a person and my mind running its fingers through her hair. While cars move through distances once moved through by others ; while streets get repaved and worked upon like the faces of so many beautiful people searching for what Gaddis called “that Youth who could do anything” ; while rivers wither in weather without season ; while friends continue to move here and the deep melancholy feeling I feel knowing that I must leave them ; while children cough and fight one another ; while I walk streets already photographed entirely in books that are no longer read but kept behind glass-
and while the sun sets on Sunset and I think back to days previous when, without money, I walked to the airport in Brooklyn, watching planes fly overhead while kids threw rocks far and away in Far Rockaway and the A train stirred through its tunneled corridor, passing me with its steel music while passengers and people waited to enter and exit its structure and I have to stop writing now and just lay here, thinking of that moment and memory, sleeping under a tree, where, without anything I felt everything.
