YOU GET, WHAT YOU GIVE.
Is the first Anteism project of 2007. ---> 12 days Left!!!
At 12:00 Midnight February 13th will be an international display of art in public places. You are invited to take part. The premise is to install a free piece of art for the general public. Knowing that a large number of people from around the world will be doing the same thing. Photographs of the artwork will be collected and a free downloadable zine will be produced and distributed through the anteism website. You give a gift and receive a multiude more in return.
What do I have to do?
Create and share. Whether you consider yourself an artist or not, produce something and install it for all to see. Then photograph your public artwork. You may need to return in the day time to get a good picture. You can even photograph the transition of what happens to the art and the effects it has on the people viewing it. Then send the photos to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your name, country, city and cross streets or area description of where the art is installed. Sit back and wait for your gift to multiply and return to you. The zine will be produced and you will be emailed a link to where you can download the finished book.
(Please send the photos in Jpg format at least 825x1225. The higher resoloution the better, but we will try to make whatever we recieve work)
Why is it on Valentines Day?
Because it should be a nice warm fuzzy day. What better day to give a gift. And it just kinda worked out that way. You can use the theme of LOVE in your artwork but it's definately not necessary. The idea of giving is more along the lines of what we want to promote.
A photocopied zine with selected works will be printed and sold through Islands Fold Publishing The proceeds from the sales of the book will go towards the Not For Profit - Islands Fold artist residency and making future Anteism projects happen.
PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD.
