"THE STRING PROJECT" is both an exhibit of photographs and an interactive piece. Through this display of photographs, we hope to bring to life the idea of "contentedness". The white string symbolizes the connection between all humans. Since January 2018, we have traveled around the world to creating this project, capturing portraits of people all holding the same simple white string. An exhibit of 40+ printed portraits are on display, hung together, with a small distance in-between, to give a visual effect that they are all joined together by the same string. In addition to the framed photographs, we continue to add to this collection throughout the duration of ArtPrize, showcasing on a TV monitor NEW portraits taken on a daily basis throughout Grand Rapids. People and countries represented in this exhibit include, but are not limited to: Asia, Africa, Europe, North, & Latin America. Thank you for participating in this project, a display of connection.
