#unmade - report 10 (91-100)

#unmade - report 10 (91-100)

February 1, 2017 marked the beginning of a year long painting / internet art project titled #unmade.

For #unmade, I am posting, via Twitter, 100 titles for 100 unrealised paintings over the course of 2017. A painting (most likely as an acrylic and ink on canvas) is available for each title. Each #unmade painting is priced at $100. To commission a painting, a person may contact me (DM via Twitter) the day the title is posted. If no one commissions the title on the the day of the post (midnight EST), the painting will remain unmade.

The tenth set of 10 tiles (#91-100) has generated 0 commissioned paintings with 8 likes and 0 retweets. During the tenth set, the @mriver twitter account lost 1 follower for the current total of 290. Of the 8 new likes for titles #91-100, 63% are from MTAA member emeritus @twhid


Here are some final notes on #unmade.

Overall, #unmade has generated 0 commissioned paintings with 85 likes and 3 retweets. During #unmade, the @mriver twitter account began and ended with 290 followers. Of the 85 likes in #unmade, the majority are from MTAA member emeritus @twhid. Thanks Tim. Also thanks to @Lindsay_Howard @gregorg @dzucconi @whileseated @magdasawon @naomiclaire @ricksilva and anyone else I may have missed for the additional likes.

#unmade is divided into 10 sets of 10 titles. Each of the 10 sets, like the individual titles, developed as the project progressed. The 10 sets of #unmade are organised into the following thematic categories.

Set 1 - Long Titles Near 140 Characters
Set 2 - Three Little Words
Set 3 - Newspaper Headlines (East to West)
Set 4 - Anagrams Paintings
Set 5 - Hexadecimal Monochromes
Set 6 - Great American Landscape Painting
Set 7 - As A Selfie
Set 8 - New Nudes
Set 9 - Large Groups of People and/or Mythical Beings Doing Things Together
Set 10 - Self Portraits With or As

Of the 10 sets, the most views occurred during the first set and the most interaction occurred during the 5th set. The lowest level of views and interactions occurred during the 4th set.

Overall, the most interactions occurred with the title 46. The color not of the cold sea at night nor a warm plum at noon but the collision of the two #2E0854 #unmade (2 likes, 1 re-tweet) and the title 65. Portrait Of Young Boy With His New Drone As A Selfie #unmade (3 likes 0 re-tweets). The least interaction occurred with title 83 which was not written nor posted. No, Iím not sure why.

The documentation of the project including the 10 set reports will remain archived as a Google doc at

At some point I hope to have the work copy edited as I am sure it is full of typos. Finally, I plan on making 10 small #unmade paintings in 2018. The goal is to produce one text based painting of the titles for each of the 10 sets. permanent link to this post
