Fortnight Journal founders Adam Whitney Nichols and Samantha Hines launched the web project on October 20 with the goal of archiving and documenting the promise of the millennial generation. The site’s inaugural fourteen contributors will submit one work per two week cycle, revealing a new multimedia moment by a different person everyday. Then a luminary – the first, Patti Smith – responds critically or creatively to one piece. The site contributors rotate quarterly. The project is a publication of Fourteen Foundation, Inc., “a nonprofit public initiative devoted to reviving cross-generational mentorship by documenting and sustaining dialogue on traditional forms of practice,” who are currently in the process of obtaining tax-exempt status. Listen to them discuss their vision for a new kind of website.
