Lukas Zpira and The Chaøs Chrønicles are currently seeking crowd-funding for the next stage in their artistic research journey, this chapter — which is already ongoing — taking place over about 2,500 miles of road trip from Guadalajara, Mexico, down through Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and ending up in Costa Rica. You can learn more about this stage of the project here on the blog (as well as on Mayliss’s White Rabbit blog), where you’ll find the photo below and any more gems. It’s only a relatively small number that they need to raise to make this project a reality, and those who donate at www.ulule.com/cronicasdelcaos/ can get a variety of rewards like postcards from every city visited, printed and signed photos, and more.
I’ve just made a donation to this by the way — my general policy when I post about projects requesting money is that I wouldn’t ask you to donate to something that I don’t think is worthwhile myself. To make a general comment about the Internet, too many people think that it’s “good enough” to just share information like this. That by spreading the word, you’ve helped enough. Now, of course spreading the word is a good thing, but it means very little if it doesn’t also come with actual donations. So I just want to put it on the record that if I suggest to you that something is worth donating to, you can feel secure that I’m not just trying to get you to pay for something I believe in. I supported this project because I think Lukas is an artist that’s out there making the world a better place and I’d like to see his work continue. To say nothing of the fact that Lukas is something that’s given a lot to me personally and a lot to this community as a whole and I feel that we owe him.
