Is That You?


I've shown you this mobile gallery (Axle Contemporary Gallery) before. Recently they did a week long project where they would take your picture with something that means lot to you. They would then post the photos on the van and on their website. In May all of the photos will be on display at Site Santa Fe as part of an exhibit. They will also choose some that will become part of a book. It was a great community project.

I'll bet it's fun to see how many faces you can recognize.

This is so interesting and I can see how the community would get involved...well, unless, of course, you are a fugitive running from the law, on the lam, so to speak. Then you might not want your photo posted on a van driving through town and in front of the police station. Right?

:-)

Have a great day today!

Kate said...

What an interesting and fascinating project. Unique! Was your photo taken, Randy?

Cathy Hudspeth said...

Very fun!

What a great project. Would be fun to see if you knew anyone in the pics!

JM said...

This is great! It reminds me of the INSIDE OUT Project I worked on and posted on in January.

Luis Gomez said...

Wonderful project! Really cool Randy.

Birdman said...

I've heard about your picture on a milk carton but the side of a truck????

PerthDailyPhoto said...

More to the point Randy, is your picture on that van?? It does sound like a great community project.
btw I like the sound of your chair from the 40's, bet it looks great.

I like this! Any group that fosters community spirit deserves kudos!

TexWisGirl said...

how cool is THAT?! love that!

Halcyon said...

This is a great idea. Did you get your photo done? What did you pose with? :)

Regina K said...

Is that you, crawling up my stairs,
is that you.

Immediately that song went thru my mind, will be humming it all day..

This is good for the community!

Jarart said...

Are you on there, Randy? With a camera perhaps? It looks like a fun project.

Melissa said...

I like the idea of a mobile gallery. And the photos have a powerful effect overall. Wish I could see it up close. All those people, and for each one the photo is special. Very nice.

Lúcia said...

This is a good idea!
Did you get your photo done? ;-)

Teri said...

I love what street art has turned in to. I watched a show the other day regarding this and how one artist followed people around while they were doing their street art and documented boxes upon boxes of stuff. I'd say in these days and times, anything goes. It would just be great to be the first person to think about it and follow through.

Michelle said...

Great idea and quite creative!

Sharon said...

A very interesting project. Did you have your photo added to the group?

Lynette said...

Utterly fantastic, Randy. Isn't creativity like this a great jolt to one's system?

Magpie said...

Come on Randy, tell us. Did you get your photo taken? :)

Randy, I am sorry I haven't been commenting - I have a lot of work AND an out of town guest at the same time. What a cool looking project! I hope you are enjoying your weekend.

What an interesting project!

Jack said...

This is a great project. I like seeing community arts projects.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

I think this is fabulous and a great community effort. It reminds me a bit of NPR's StoryCorps rolling time capsule (in an Airstream, no less!)

Bises,

Teresa said...

Awesome!!! and Different!
