Now I've already posted a variety of blog and journal posts regarding this around the web to drum up some support and ensure that I get to the magic number of 1008 images. Here are the basic details in a condensed form:
What do the need?
A photo of you in profile as per the example and your name as you would like it to appear.
Then send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Any specifics on the photos?
The photos don't have to be of amazingly high quality but it is important I can make out your features easily. If it's too dark I may ask you for a replacement.
If you are under the age of 18 you will need your parent/guardians permission but I'm happy to put people of any age or location in this project.
And what happens to the photos?I am creating an art piece that, once complete, will have all 1008 faces sketched into a specific pattern. I will hand sketch each face based on yours and the 1007 other photos. The finished size will be 3 meters wide by 2 meters high (over 6 panels)
Can you do anything else?
Well, if you have anyone else who may be interested please send them through or if you have a blog please post information regarding the project. If you have a location that people check regularly I can mail through a pack including business Cards and a flyer.
If you want your family included in this project I am happy to put an entire group in together pending space.
Who the hell am I?
My name is Michael Alesich and I'm a visual artist based in Melbourne, Australia. I just completed a year long project of sketching a daily calendar for 2010. I am highly experienced with sketching, photography and wire sculpture.
Thank you in advance
