Daytoday is an ongoing public network of personal exchanges that offers alternative ways of meeting business and personal needs- without using money. Daytoday was started by Carolina Caycedo in 2002 and has toured cities like Vienna, Bogotá, London, Sevilla, North Adams, New York and San José. From July 1 to August 4, 2009 it will be operating in Los Angeles, exchanging and bartering all kinds of values. Take a look at the bartering lists, and match your necessities with Carolina’s. If you don’t find what you need, or what you can give, you can always propose a new barter.
Note: Throughout the duration of the program, Carolina will travel around Los Angeles creating a network of personal exchanges through the barter system.

Write an article on my work
Born 1978, London, England; lives and works in Isabella, Puerto Rico. Carolina Caycedo responds to the effects of global capitalism with a practice rooted in processes of communication, movement, and exchange. Her varied projects— from street actions and itinerant markets to public marches— all germinate in dialogues with communities outside of the art world, and her works invariably refer back to the culture and economy of the street.
g727 seeks to generate dialogues on artistic representations and interpretations of the urban landscape. The building blocks of a city comprise more than simply buildings, streets, and sidewalks. They equally encompass personal experience, collective memory and narratives. These are the less tangible, but no less integral elements that transform mere infrastructure into place. Through photography, painting, writing and video installations, artists open our eyes to these elements and heighten our awareness of what makes a place a place. g727 welcomes these artists to its space to help us all better understand the complex nature of cities and the urban condition.
