Project code: 499
I`m Anna Blankovska - an artist and graphic designer with over 20 years of experience in the creative field, and I am eager to present to the esteemed audience an intriguing artistic project capable of uniting a multitude of individuals in a singular stream of creativity.
"We are fragments of a whole."
Description: This initiative entails a series of small artistic gatherings where North Ayrshire residents are invited to paint individual square cards, each becoming part of a large, pixelated mosaic image. Participants are provided with cards and artistic tools such as markers, pencils, or paints, allowing them to contribute personal elements, drawings, or messages. The artist ultimately compiles these into a cohesive mosaic canvas.
Social Contribution: The project offers every city dweller the opportunity to be part of a grand art installation symbolizing unity and diversity within the urban milieu. The final image, composed of hundreds or thousands of cards created by different individuals, will represent a visual embodiment of the community's collective consciousness and creative potential.
Post-creation, all cards are assembled into a singular installation, potentially displayed in public spaces or galleries. "Social Pixel" is manageable in scale, easily organized by a single artist, yet it engages and involves the city's residents actively.
Goals and Objectives:
Assembly and Exhibition:
Evaluation and Documentation:
This project exemplifies how art can unite people, giving everyone a chance to be heard and seen.
Cards (500 pcs): £50.
Set of markers, acrylic paints, and pencils: £50.
Compensation for the organizer-artist's time (10 sessions at 1 hour each): £200.
Coffee, tea, and biscuits for the sessions: £30.
Assembly of all images into one, including the creation and transportation of the stand to the exhibition site: £50.
This estimation encompasses the primary expenses for materials, the artist's labor, refreshments for participants, and the construction of the stand for the final exhibition. Additional costs such as marketing, logistics, and contingency expenses might also be considered for a comprehensive budget assessment of the project.
