Modern Art Reinterpretation Project
Boxes full of memories, computer folders full of photos... and no inspiration to transform those into something 'beautiful': a piece of self-made art to remind us of the good times!
Young people are digitally savvy and also not involved with the emotional value of the memory: perfect conditions to reinterpret that one photo memoir older people have kept, literally, untouched.
How would you describe your idea in one sentence?
Reinterpret, Revamp and Remake memories into art!
Elderly are invited to send or upload their visual memoir (a photo, a picture, a cut-out or old booklet).
Young, art academy students or amateur 'makers' are invited to reinterpret and post their art back on a website where it is available in lo res for viewing. Downloads are possible at a rate, which can either be determined by the audience or fixed by the artist.
It could have a competition format, as in 99designs.com
We could even have a sponsorship with a printer, to print out on special papers, canvas, etc at a discounted rate?
What early, lightweight experiment can you try out in your own community to test any assumptions you might have about your idea?
Ask family for some of their photos and try it out ourselves. See what they think!
What aspects of your idea could benefit from the input, skills or know-how of our OpenIDEO community?
If you know of any examples (like 99designs.com) that are similar, we would love your input to check those out too.
