Kids! All of 'em.

The above is an excerpt from a "report" written in response to an "assignment" given by the folks at Learning to Love You More .
Learning to Love You More is an amazing, unique site, unlike any I've seen before on the Web--and I've seen many. The premise, as described by its authors, is as follows:
Learning to Love You More is both a web site and series of non-web presentations comprised of work made by the general public in response to assignments given by artists Miranda July and Harrell Fletcher. Yuri Ono designs and manages the web site.

Participants accept an assignment, complete it by following the simple but specific instructions, send in the required report (photograph, text, video, etc), and see their work posted on-line. Like a recipe, meditation practice, or familiar song, the prescriptive nature of these assignments is intended to guide people towards their own experience.
I'm impressed. Check it out; you might be, too.
