Hello to everyone from around the world who is tuning in.
I have a great idea and I’d love you to be part of it. It’s an art project that aims to span the globe and connect people from all over the planet in one collaborative painting.
So what is it?
Lucy’s Global Art Project is an event that’s taking place on June 21st 2017. To be part of it all you have to do is take a picture of any object that you choose at midday (your timezone). Then, send it over to me with your name and where your took the photograph. So simple.
My plan is to collate all of these photographs together in one huge painting that represents the global mind at that point in time – or as Jung would put it, ‘The Collective Unconscious’.
I chose the solstice because it has held an important place in all cultures in history being both the longest day in the northern hemisphere and the shortest in the southern. I hope to tap into some of that peak energy. If you can take your picture around midday that would be ideal but please don’t worry if it’s a few hours either way.
How do you get involved?
Simply join the event on Facebook here and you will get reminders and updates about how the event is progressing. You can also take a look at the style in which the painting will be made and the progression I’m making through this.
Another thing on offer is a special discount on final prints to those who send photos. You will also receive a map of the world, marked with all the places that the photographs came from.
Please spread the word to as many people as possible. Consciousness is all about networking both inside the brain and outside so I’m relying on seven degrees of separation to seek out far away and exotic locations.
I am personally fascinated to see how different or how similar the photographs will be. A small snapshot into the lives of so many people spanning the globe is going to be revealing.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to know more about my work.
