Ok. I need some help with a new art work I would like to create.  All I need is an image of your living room.

Here are details if you are interested:

1.  Take a photo of your living room at the highest quality your camera allows.  You can take it however you want.  The more of your living room you can fit into one image the better.

2.  Pick your favorite photo and send it to me at lauren (at) laurenusher.com

If you cannot send a digital image and still want to participate, email me.  I will send you my address so you can send me a paper print.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Can’t wait and thanks for volunteering!

Update on a Particular Project

Update: I am no longer pursuing this art piece. Thanks for those who volunteered and sent images my way. Perhaps someday I will continue work on it…

I have not been as diligent as I would like to be in terms of collecting material for my Significant Stranger Project.

In the beginning, the project entailed a numerous amount of stuff being sent to me from a stranger that I will never meet.  That concept still remains the same, however, I have decided to take it one step at a time.

I would like anyone who is willing to send me the following:

1.  One photograph of your living room.

2.  One photograph of the front of your house.

What will I be doing with these photos you ask?  Making a montage of sorts….

So, if you want to join in on this worldwide art piece, please do.  Leave a comment and I will get back to you or send the image to me via email.

Thanks for the help.

The art wouldn’t exist without you.

Art Project #1

So, I am finishing up my current project and would like to begin another. Here is the deal for this new idea of mine.

The title of this new project is “Significant Strangers.” I believe that every single person on this earth, both past and present, has had an effect on my life. That is a short explanation, but that’s the gist.

So, if you want to join in you will need to send me as many of the following items as you wish.

1. A photograph of yourself. Any photo will do.

2. A newspaper from the town you live in. I need the WHOLE newspaper.

3. Photograph of your house/home.

4. Photograph of the city/town you live in.

5. Postcard with your favorite “thing” written on the back.

I will also need you to send a signed model release form. I will email that to those who are interested.

If you are interested, please send me an email at lauren@laurenusher.com

This is a volunteer participation project. What that means is you will be doing this for free. There will be no money payment involved, but you should be happy that you have contributed to the art world, and therefore the entire world.

My intention is to get an exhibition out of this. No promises, as the art world is not an easy place to work. But, if I get enough volunteers, I do believe the work will be strong and people will want to see it. Of course I will keep the names and contact information of the participants and let them know when I do have a showing of this project.

If you think this project is something you would like to be involved with please either reply to this post or send me an email at lauren@laurenusher.com

Thanks for the time. Hopefully this will work into another show.

I will keep everyone updated on the process as it goes.
