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.
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.
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.
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 🙂 I can only begin to imagine the beauty of the mosaic that different type of colouring and texture could make! 🙂
