Paper Monument’s latest publication, Draw It with Your Eyes Closed, gathers together hundreds of assignments written by artists, many of which take the shape of “to do” lists. These include Heather Hart’s purposely vague directive “Take an 18 x 24 inch piece of paper and make a drawing using nothing but your car” and the anonymous submission “Go into your studio. Using all of the clothes you are wearing, make a work of art. Leave the studio naked.” We don’t recommend trying to pull off both of those assignments at the same time.
