Elevate1 will soon be starting in Samoa! As December 12th makes its way through time zones across the world, there will be a 48 hour window to get your work done - although no individual subjectivity on the planet will likely have all 48 hours unless they hop across the international date line. In any case we wish you the best of luck, and please send us whatever traces you create at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Remember to be creative, be careful, be respectful (don't impede others who need the elevator!), and be in touch!
Regarding Late Work: While there is no strict submission deadline, we encourage participants to share your own work and get it to us as soon as possible after the date so we can also make it available.
We do want to emphasize that late work, while not preferable, may be acceptable - the main thing is that you're doing elevator work.
We are confident 12-12 will be remembered as The Beginning.

How it was a secret from us for so long we will never know, but apparently, and seemingly prolific and talented group calling themselves the National Elevator Project has been touring Canada performing works in elevators this year. We have reached out to them so far with no reply. If you know how to get in touch with them please do tell.
Surely there are countless representations, but here are a few of them. Let us know your favorites, and draw inspiration from these for the work you undertake on the 12th!
