A long running connection project hosted on a Facebook page. The Connect With This Space page has since been deleted. At the end of the project, 542 connections had been made. Each notified page like was coded using REVAD’s colour alphabet. Each coded username was posted to the page and included in a collective outcome on revad.com. As the connection count approached 500 a Blurb published book was made recording 468 coded user names (APPROACHING 500 ; ISBN: 9781388440114). Other derivative outcomes have yet to be made…

A long running connection project hosted on Twitter. The account changed names over the years, but the coding of follower user names continued. By the end, using a stylised version of Morse Code, the project had coded 715 user names. The codes of current followers were displayed on revad.com and linked back to the follower Twitter accounts. Followers were never pursued and paid advertising was avoided. Beyond the first 50, the followers found the project Twitter account and followed of their own free will. Follows were not routinely reciprocated, the coded names were posted instead. At closure (in 2018) the project still had more than 500 active followers. In 2013/14 a real-world physical outcome toured with the This ‘Me’ of Mine exhibition (curated by Jane Boyer). Other derivative outcomes have yet to be made…
