They initiate projects, individually or together, and depending on the nature of the project, they involve other artists. The projects of By the way take place at different locations and mostly abroad. The projects involve a working period and a presentation and usually it brings artists together from different disciplines. All the projects include travelling, not necessarily far, but the location will always be "new" for the participating artists. BY THE WAY IN HILTON / 1995 A working period and presentation on the parking lot of the Hilton Hotel, with the car as a starting point for an exhibition. A/C DE LUXE / 1997 A project of Elspeth Diederix and Jeroen Kooijmans i.c.w. three Dutch artists of the ICCD (International Centre for Cultural Development) in Trivandrum India. The artist worked for a month. They started this working -period with an exhibition of 24 hours in the Mascott Hotel. The final outcome was a publication, a poster/catalogue. OFF THE ROAD / 1997 The project took place in 'Under Dubbelsbro', Copenhagen. An industrial building between rail roads and highways close to the centre of Copenhagen. This building and the city itself inspired the artists for their work, which in the end resulted in an exhibition. A catalogue was made at the end of this project. GATEWAY TO THE ARCTIC / 1998 A group of artists made work, while travelling to the north of Norway. Their work was presented in the Tromsĝ Art Society. They decided to make new works and to experiment while travelling.This resulted in an intensive working period with a lot of cooperation. O SOLO MIO / 2000 A group of artists went to see the solar eclipse on the 11th of August 1999. They documented their experiences of the eclipse , in foto's, video's and sound.
