Taking a page out of the Ted Forbes school of community building, we are holding a film photography-based competition. We are sending film cameras out into the state. Each participant will be allotted two shots on the roll of film. When they’ve used their allotted frames, the camera will be sent to the next person until the roll of film is complete. Once all the cameras are returned, and the film processed and scanned, we’ll hold a special competition for the participants. We’ll also be creating a special gallery for the images once the competition is complete.
We each have a unique artistic eye. The aim of this project is to merge those eyes to create a one-of-a-kind, community-based piece of art. Called “Recording Sessions,” each participant will be given a set of GPS coordinates, some location clues and a reference image. They will then take a photograph from that spot and edit it in their own way. The photographs contributed will be used to create a composite iconic scene from our state via horizontal sections. This project will run monthly, each with a new location. At the end of the year we’ll have 11 unique pieces of work with literally hundreds of contributors. We’ll be looking for an exhibition location, hopefully multiple locations so all the contributors can get a chance to see the work.
More details soon!
