A seed for a new project has been planted. To launch it into being, I am asking people (friends, family and strangers) to send me a single screen shot of their computer desktop screen. How do I do that? You may ask. Here is a helpful link with instructions.
For this project, I'll be examining the unique placement and patterns of files on a screen. Flat and artificially lit screens lack the depth and light found in nature or any physical space that surrounds us. And though screens remain flat and too-bright, once a user begins to add files to their machines, screens begin to look more organic, or more like a piece of the user's personality. Some screens may be meticulously organized while others are more chaotic. No two screens are alike.
The submitted images will all be posted and added to a dedicated project page on this website. After I've compiled enough of the images, I plan on doing large-scale ink and watercolor drawings of each screenshot submitted. Each participant will receive a print of their desktop image.
If you are interested in participating, please email me your screenshot.
