Thanks to everyone who has participated. Here are the the last round of images received for the Line from Life project, enjoy!
Line from Life
"I am for an art that takes its form from the lines of life itself, that twists and extends and accumulates and spits and drips, and is heavy and coarse and blunt and sweet and stupid as life itself."
You or anyone you know can participate in Line from Life. Simply read the quote from Oldenburg and think of a line from your life. Make it something unique and personal (perhaps it's the tail of your favorite dog, the knot on your oldest shoe, the wheel on your skateboard, a symbol of your religion, an initial of your lover's name, or even an abstract mark).
Use a blank white letter size sheet of paper and create a line from your life. You may use any instrument to create the mark and any color, but the mark must be only one complete shape/line. Therefore the moment your instrument/hand leaves the sheet of paper, the mark is done. However, the mark you make may be as variable as you wish (but no contour drawings please). When finished, scan your mark and send it to the e-mail:
You may leave your name or a username if you feel uncomfortable giving out your real name. In the end all submissions will be comprised into one massive image to showcase the lines of multiple lives converging in an art piece. If you leave no name your submission will be labeled anonymous. Check back to see your lines submitted periodically and in early May the final project will be unveiled.
