During the Textaport 2007 exhibit, artists collaborated with the gallery to produce a series of unknown objects. Textaport.com is currently under construction but a few of the projects are highlighted on this page.
In October 2007, artist Danny Mansmith was invited to manifest a mystery object that was locked away inside of a box. He was given only a few pages of text (written and designed by gallery director, Caro d’Offay) and a large ruler that converted an inch to approximately two feet. Following the “recipe”, Danny spent 9 days on his industrial sewing machine, creating the object.
