minimalism on the streets!****************

“Anyone can make a monochrome. Most of us probably have made one at some time or another, although we wouldn’t necessarily have recognised it. And we wouldn’t necessarily need to have made one, as most of the time we are already surrounded by ready-made monochromes of various shapes and sizes. The world is full of unintended, sometimes accidental, often temporary, and mostly unnoticed monochromes…Every city is a museum of the inadvertent monochrome”
David Batchelor, In bed with the monochrome.
From an Aesthetic point of view, Philosophy, Art and the Senses.
Edited by Peter Osborne. Serpent’s Tail, 2000

Send me a photo of found, ready-made monochrome from your city, town or village, along with details or where and when you found it plus any miscellaneous details you think are interesting. It could be an unused, painted over or papered over billboard or sign, side of a truck, fence round a construction site, side of a building, anything, any colour. The only rule is that you can’t have made it yourself.

Heres more info...

project summary* I LOVE MY CITY:urban identites

We all have a personal identity with the city in which we live in or near too, weather its a favourite building, street or landmark, personal or unique experience, memory or event, or it's just that we have a love of where we grew up and each individual as their own social history with their home city.

To investigate this further I am calling for people to send me a personal visual representation of their home city in any medium through the postal system.
This could include:
Found object
List of words
.....anything goes. ..... no size restriction at present.

DEADLINE: 31/12/2006

Each piece of mail that is sent to me will appear in an exhibition in February 2007 in Salford, England. Each persons name and location will appear next to the sent work.

If you would like to take part in this project by sending me mail please e-mail for my postal address.
If you would like to send an item that you think will cost a lot to send i can pay you back for the postage once the item has arrived.

thanks, rachael
