Update for 2013: we’re moving on, sort of. This year, we will post one somewhat higher-commitment project on the final Monday of each month. These projects will still be experimental, but bigger, more fully realized, or possibly part of a larger body of work.
One project each and every Monday morning of 2012. Alternating brittany-tae-brittany-tae. During art school, our studios were connected by an open doorway. We started as strangers, but for the first (and only) assignment of the two-year program, our instructor paired us together. So began a back-and-forth of materials, ideas, and foods. Since school, we’ve both returned to our home states. Hawaii and Oregon aren’t exactly connected by a teletransporter, so it is hard to keep up the co-generation of ideas. That’s where Low-Commitment Projects comes in. Low-Commitment Projects provides us a chance to share concepts and schemes without a huge outlay of time, energy, or money. These ventures are like the materialization of mental sketches; there’s minimal risk because they’re quick. xoxo tae kitakata and brittany powell
I like the concept. It’s quite thought provoking and invokes a challenging sense of presentation.
Hi, I would like to use some of the pictures of the art sandwiches for our youth newspaper called 7 days. Is that possible??
Hiya…got that wonderful Mondrian sandwich on my daily link to Monoprix in Paris a few days ago.
Let’s give credit where it’s due, mon ami……
I saw your sandwich on the swissmiss blog – I love it! I’m excited to continue checking in!
love & rockets,
Yay, we’re thrilled you visited.
i love this idea. and am jealous that i cannot be a part of it! even though i dont know you guys at all. art is fun.
That’s so sweet. We’re having a good time so far, but we’re only 3 weeks into the 52!
I am actually trying a variation of this with my Architecture graduate friends (LA-NY-Paris), but it’s proving quite difficult not only with distance/communication but the nature of our design projects leaning more on the long-term, high commitment spectrum!
This concept is definitely inspirational, good luck and hope to see more fun stuff!
Just subscribed. Wish I thought of the blog name first 😉
Thanks! We both keep having to remember how to spell commitment.
this is great, its fabulous to see you guys keeping up a correspondence after school, wich as all artists know is a difficult thing. Keep up the good work!
Yeah, we’ve spent the last… holy crap… eight years not working together, so it is great to get back into it.
This is such a great idea. I share a blog with my best friend and this is where we share what inspires us.
That is so cool.
Really liking this blog. So far, so good. Just subscribed to the feed…
Great to have you!
beautiful beautiful concept.
love what i’ve seen so far; already relegating you to quick-access-bookmark status. 🙂
Quick-access-bookmark status? Yesssss. Fist pump.
This is stellar. Keep it up =)
I love this idea. It’s great for those of us who have very little space to work with. I also tend to skip around from project to project, so this is a great way to have something completed and not have to work on it for day or weeks.
I know–it is so easy to leave a series of unfinished projects in your wake.
I can’t wait for more—no pressure.
Ha. We’re working on it.
wow, such a new blog and so many links already. well done. it’s especially beautiful. I love love love the mondrian sandwich. well done guys, I’ll be back!
Thanks! Glad to have you.
WAIT! There are only 3 projects so far?? NO! There must have been more Mondays so far! I am already obsessed with all three projects!!! So funny, so inspiring, so beautiful. I love it. Collaborating with friends is the best gift in the world, especially for getting stuff actually finished. I can’t wait for MONDAY! Hey, it’s manyana! YAY, MC
Eek–Monday is tomorrow, isn’t it? Yes, we keep each other on track.
loved all the projects! looking forward to future ones
can interested readers participate too? 🙂
We would LOVE to see what you do, too.

I just ran across your blog, and I’m totally in love with both the projects and the concept! I’ve never had any art training, but I’m trying to be more creative in my life–and this has made me think I should find someone to be creative with. Thanks for a lovely blog!
So glad you visited our project!
such a smart idea. good way to stay close with artist friends and make fun, inexpensive art. way to go you two! i’m excited to see more 😀
We’re excited to see what each other do, too.
I love this project! Would it be okay if I featured this project on my blog? http://inadvertentlyart.blogspot.com/
Let me know thanks!
Sure, thanks for asking.
What a fantasticand inspiring idea. Good luck and thank you for givingme somethingtolook forward to every monday. Mark (NZ)
I guess we’d better not be late with our projects!
Actually with the date line thing it’ll be a tuesday for us in the antipodes but tuesday is really just monday morning coming back to see if it’s stolen all the weekend joy away so it’ll be even better!
Found you through Pee-Wee Herman… So glad I did! Good luck, & can’t wait to see whatever comes next!
Thanks for visiting!

I ADORE this. If you are ever taking contributions… 🙂
Hmm, we’ll have to discuss setting up a section for reader-submitted projects. That could be wonderful.
Please have a pinterest link- I would click “Follow All” for your boards!
This is a terrific idea, but you may or may not realize we totally maxed out all of our computer/internets/technical know-how just by setting up a website. Luckily, we might be able to ask friends for help.
What a great project!! I can’t wait to see what both of you come up with next! Also, I would love to feature this project on my blog – ourhouseofsunshine.blogspot.com. Let me know if that will be ok.
Sure–thank you for asking.

Smart and fun, congratulations.
Would love to be emailed updates of new posts!
Jessica–Hmm, I think you can click “follow” for that to happen, though we’re not so good on the technical end.
Hello guys! i did write a couple of days ago asking if it was ok to post your projects on my blog… but i have no idea where my comment has gone – hope you don’t mind, but i’ve just posted about you! thanks for your inspiration!
Great, thank you.
Very clever idea to share between friends throughout twenty-twelve!
The best part is that we’ve been in touch more than ever!
I’m sincerely impressed so far. Keep it up!
Thank you–we’re trying!
Loved your concept… I will be following you from Copenhagen 🙂
Congratulations and keep up with your nice work!
May I refer you and use some of your pictures in my portuguese blog (allways mentioning you and your page of course)?!
This is awesome, from the name of your blog to the concepts each Monday. I’ll definitely visit every week.
love the concept and the work. fun and inspiring.
Thank you! We’re hoping to inspire ourselves, too.
Just the name lf your blog is awesome!
And the content is brilliant a well 🙂
And thanks for the work and the smile I get everytime i look at it 😀
Cheers from Paris
PS: don’t you have a Twitter account?
Thank you for the sweet comment. What is this “twitter” you speak of? Just kidding–we’re just barely getting up to speed on this whole thing. Maybe we’ll work up to that.
LOVE the concept !!
Fab and fun!
what do you think about this http://www.mypizzart.it ? could it match your target?…… best greetings from Italy
Those are hilarious–I especially like the red Keith Haring.
Love your sandwich art! Would love to share on the evian water Facebook page at Facebook.com/evian. Do you have a Facebook page we can link to? Thanks!
We don’t have a facebook page, but it is fine if you want to link to lowcommitmentprojects.com. Thanks.
Do you sell prints of the “Sandwich artist” prints? Would love to get my hands on them! 😀
Yep–I’ll email you.
Hi! I found about your project in a 2012 retrospective and thought it was very creative and a proof of friendship too! I made a post on my website this sunday, 13th of january. Let us know if you do something together. I would like to know : Tae Kitakata, do you have a personal website? Have a good new year!
I do love the stuff that you do – it makes me smile and gets me thinking 😀
Thank you–that’s really great to hear.
Hi. I like your site. I would write more, but I don’t have any energy.
I previously liked your site, but now I am unsure about that, because I am Low Commitment.
Hey! I have some extra energy – what should I do? Should I commit?
I see some high-commitment projects in your future.
Wouldn’t ya know it. I ran out of energy. I’ll try to do a low energy project, but I am not sure. I live in San Diego.
Wow, I just partially-committed, and I have to tell you it feels great! Low-commitment of course.
Ah it is so refreshing to find a low-commitment site… I am just so low on commitement. Thanks
