Amnesty of rejection

A proposed exhibition at the Royal College of Art is calling for your rejections. They will be displayed and then recycled to create "a document of positive affirmation".

According to the RCA's Students' Union blog, chosen letters will be on display in the Union for a two to three week period which will culminate in a "Bacchanal" on 11 December.

All the letters will be destroyed (shredded) and then recycled; turned into a "positive document" that, along with photographs of the process, will be framed and hung somewhere in the college.

The full story from Mark is up on Creative Review.

Interesting concept but I can't join in - some people don't read reviews of their work, I don't keep rejection letters. Who needs all that negativity hanging around?
I like the conept of the 'positive document' though...

I wonder if they're up for acceptances where the publication has then proceeded to fold. I've almost as many of those as rejections.

What a glorious idea. It's almost a pity that I consign the opinions of people who've rejected me to Room 101 too, really...
