I Got You Babe


Portland, Oregon based artists Brad Adkins and Christopher Buckingham, under the moniker 'Charm Bracelet,' create projects ranging from film and video screenings to 500 person collaborative paintings that serve as foundations for expanding social networks. With 'You,' Charm Bracelet realizes their mission to visualize social gatherings with a simple Web site and message board. 'You' isn't about self-importance; instead it's about someone else. Visitors are asked to write about someone who has inspired them and read some of the many other entries. These stories will form the basis for a book and exhibition this February. -Ryan Griffis
