Slice Of Life

While playing with my daughter today I thought of a project for #return2me that can increase audience participation. This post by @transiit got me thinking about a line-art postcard that would encourage people to color it in.

Expectant Frog is waiting for a postcard return

Meet “Expectant Frog”. He is not waiting for a fly to pass by. No, he’s waiting for postcards!

I could, and may, send out this image as a single postcard. The idea that struck me today was to enlarge the image, slice it up into nine individual postcards and send those out into the world.

Single Slice Of A Bigger Picture

By slicing up the image into vaguely recognizable pieces, a person who finds the card and colors it won’t be bound by any preconceived notions of what the bigger picture is. Reassembled we get a variegated quilt no single person could have created.
We can rebuild him!

We can rebuild him!

Find a postcard. Color in the front. Return it to me. I put your piece together with the 8 other pieces from around the world!

    This is a nice evolution of the project ๐Ÿ™‚ I can only begin to imagine the beauty of the mosaic that different type of colouring and texture could make! ๐Ÿ™‚
