In what is turning out to be a biannual tradition, we took a vote at OU Blog HQ and agreed that we’re sick to death of how the blog looks and it’s time for something new. Fortunately for us (and unfortunately for him), the artist Roman Opałka passed away recently and we learned about his amazing art project.
Starting in 1965 and ending when he passed away on August 6th, Opalka worked on a single art project he called “1965 / 1 – ∞”. What was it? Every day Opalka would paint numbers in numerical order on large canvases. He started with 1 in 1965 and was to 5,500,000 by 2004 (we couldn’t find his last number). Talk about dedication!
