‘Be joyful, keep the faith, and do the little things.’ St David 589 AD
Through the pandemic, Jake turned to making tiny golden boats, sending them to people he cared about as a kind of silent, wordless communication, heart to heart. These small gestures - ‘little things’ - have started to form a web stretching far and wide, a visual expression of our universal human need for belonging and connection.
Jake invites you to collaborate in the creation of a communal artwork called 'Do the Little Things'. To participate, you send the boat that you purchase on to a person of your choice. Upon completion of your order, you will be asked if you (and the recipient of the boat) would like its journey to be charted (anonymously) as a line on an illuminated map of the world, to be created as an artwork by Jake in the future.
