3. Identity, Disclosure, and Representation in the Arts

Create and Display a Quilt or Mosaic made from online submission

This idea is a result of the conversation from dephinia's topic, "Isolated and Unsupported", and a comment from Carrie Sandahl. Why don't we create a Quilt or Mosaic created from multiple online submissions from those who are home-bound, and only have their computers to work with? There are many digital works that can be transferred to canvases, or even stone. We then display the combined efforts as a quilt or mosaic nationally, similar to the way the "aids" quilt was made by many contributors, and then displayed around the country. (See http://www.aidsquilt.org/ ). Here's an example of how a digital image may be transferred to canvas, for example, if a person wanted to contribute their artwork as one piece of a "quilt" ...https://www.pinterest.com/kachinahome/photo-transfer-to-canvas-diy/ Here's an example of how to transfer a digital image to stone for at least temporary display http://www.goodshomedesign.com/how-to-transfer-an-image-onto-stone/ and a more permanent example in which an image is etched into glass (similar process for stone) https://a-e-mag.com/features/how-etch-photographs


The bottom line, many independent hands, stuck at home with nothing but a computer, can design, and contribute to, a national project, thus greatly increasing visibility.
