The Johnny Cash Project, the cut

I can’t remember when I first heard Johnny Cash. In a way, he’s one of those artists who’s just always ‘been there’ to me. But unlike some of the others I put in that category – Bob Dylan, The Beatles – Johnny has a special place in my heart. You know, I honestly don’t know if I’ve ever watched the video for his cover of NiN’s Hurt without crying. Anyway, that’s beside the point.

The Johnny Cash Project is a community art project that aims to connect fans of the man in black from all over the world by asking them to illustrate a frame from a new music video.

Earlier this year, Ink contributed a frame and just the other day the project organisers released a doc about the whole experiment as well as a director cut of the video. Ink made it into the documentary too. Hehe, he’s officially all Web 2.0 now I think.
