1 in A Million You
Call for creative responses
This is an interdisciplinary project, any medium is welcome.
A NEW ONLINE COMMUNITY IS APPEARING IN THE MEDIA, LINKING PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT STAGES OF LIFE AND BACKGROUNDS WITH A MYSTERIOUS AND TRIBAL FACIAL MASK.
1 in A Million You is research into what this phenomenon reveals about our identity and how we are shaped by the media – and in turn shaping the media.
We are interested in how you would interpret this, how you justify people’s interest in belonging to such a community, or what you think the mask, and the ‘tribe’ stands for. You can respond with any digital medium (images, videos, sounds…) , or any other medium that could be documented online (e.g photograph of a sculpture)
Visit the community’s website to explore the different ways in which people have taken part, and how the general audience is responding to the appearances.
Selected works and essays will :
> Be published on the project website.
> Form part of a publication documenting the 1 In A Million You phenomenon.
> Be shared and discussed throughout the community online pages.
> Inform (and potentially be referenced or made visible) during a documentary on SKYARTS in the summer 2013.
If your proposed idea requires specific material or equipment, we can help cover some of the related costs.
For more info, just email firstname.lastname@example.org before Sunday 5 May. The work would need to be created by 22 May to form part of the project documentary.
EBSQ Self Representing Artists is an online community for artists who want to take control of their own art careers. They describe their site as a hub where you can house your full portfolio, link to all of your online venues, easily establish the provenance of your work with their Digital Certificate of Authenticity tools, and connect with a global art community of artists, artisans, book artists and photographers.
There is a membership fee for artists. I did email to enquire about how much their membership fees are, but have not heard back as yet. Here is the email address for EBSQ– email@example.com
