What does life look like this second? Get out your cell phone and take a picture right now. And send it to “The Big Picture Project”
I’ve got another photo project going that you all are invited to be a part of. It’s called The Big Picture Project”
The Big Picture Project is a living mosaic. This project was inspired by the “Found in the City Gallery” here on Sleepyurbanit.com.
The Big Picture Project is about all the things big and small that we visually digest each day- all strung together into one big-picture-paragraph. The mosaic is like taking our everyday lives and shooting it through a funky kaleidoscope… multiple vantage points, locations, perspectives all at the same time.
I’m still taking the sleepy pics. I actually have a huge backlog of images to get up. I’ve been a little distracted by my band’s new cd release and this new idea.. the “Big Picture Project.” It’s based off of the “found in the city” and “urbanhieorglyphics”galleries here on Sleepyurbanite.com
But this time is a little different than the “sleepy pics”. This time, I want to collaborate with, well YOU. Everyone Anyone with a cell phone or digital camera is invited to take a picture of what you see right now..And text or email them to bigpicture[at]localsrock.com. The photos are instantly added to a “ living mosaic” at ShowMeTheBigPicture.com. The project coincides with the release of The Locals new CD release also titled “Big Picture”. The cd will be released on Sat, June 14th 2008. We’ll play a CD release party that evening at The Elbo Room (2871 N Lincoln, Chicago Il) at 10pm.
Both the music and the visual piece of The Big Picture project all follow the this same theme of looking at life things from a different angle in order to get an interesting take on the “Big Picture”.
