tin no 22 – arrival
Here is the tin I was sent as part of the project find me.
Ninety of these tins have been sent out and left around Britain (and a few to the US) as part of an experiment.
Tracey Tucker, the artist originating the idea, wondered if we are all capable of doing something good – just for the sake of it – when we don’t really have to – an act of kindness for no real reason.
The idea is a simple one – if you find a tin that looks like this – then take what’s inside it and replace it with something else of your own. Then, send it back out into the world and see what happens. Add your experience with the tin to find me website by posting pictures and blogs- it’s really imortant that you do this, as then, other people can see what has happened to a tin that they might once have had too.
You can give a tin to a friend, a stranger, hide it, leave clues as to where it is, pass it around and around a family, anything you want.
I was so excited when I saw the tin, it was a number 22, a palindromic number, my very favourite.
