Fifteen years ago I had an idea; send a mannequin head around the world, from person to person, and see what happens. I called it, "The Traveling Head Project." I learned some HTML, built a simple website, and within a few weeks, hundreds of people from all over the world were interested in participating.

The first head was shipped to Chicago on June 6, 2003. Over the next two years heads traveled the globe from San Francisco to Sydney. Over forty people, from nine countries, participated, contributing more than 1,500 photographs. Yet, despite its success, The Traveling Head Project never felt finished.

Welcome to The Head Project. It's a lot like the old project, just better.
