My City, Your City
MY CITY, YOUR CITY: A PHOTO MASHUP
Grab your friends and neighbors to build a connected, city-wide photomosaic sculpture – and share the City YOU love with the world – on this fun, REAL-TIME interactive adventure for Chicago Artists Month 2015 designed by Chicago Creative Coalition (C3).
SIGN UP NOW FOR LIVE TEXTS DURING THE EVENT WITH THE CREATIVE PHOTO CHALLENGES, INSTRUCTIONS, AND MORE! (USE FORM BELOW)
IT’S AS EASY AS…
Anyone with a smartphone can join in! We provide the inspiration, you post photos to your Instagram account, then come see the heart of the entire city projected LIVE on the sculpture. Shoot photos where you live, or come to our HQ at Conrad Sulzer library to join us, or simply come to enjoy the amazing results!
Bathed in light with multiple projectors, this 20-foot cityscape sculpture of cubes was designed by interactive projection artist George Berlin to showcase the images that creative Chicagoans submit. See more of his exciting work at www.georgeberlin.com
Also, join us at 47th ward Alderman Pawar’s office just down the street at 6 pm that night for “My City, Our City: An Art Mashup” C3’s corresponding group show exploring how we all make Chicago our studio (with yet another wine and cheese reception!)
