In 2014, Dave the Chimp produced one new screen print every month for the whole year.
What is remarkable about this project is that he pre-sold the "Year of Prints" to his customers before any of the prints were made. Before, in fact, he even knew how they would look!
The idea was an experiment in trust, and a way of encouraging people to think differently about how they consume.
Too often we "consume now, pay later". This ends up leaving us with an empty feeling. By paying in advance, Dave's customers had the pleasure of anticipation every month as they waited for their prints to be delivered. It was this excitement and anticipation which added the magic that made this project a true art experience.
