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 a 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 been taking 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 email@example.com before Sunday 5 May. The work would need to be created by 22 May to form part of the project documentary.
