THE STRING PROJECT

Chelsea Nix's avatar Chelsea Nix Vote Code: 67899

"THE STRING PROJECT" is both an exhibit of photographs and also 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, my husband and I have been traveling around the world capturing portraits of people...all holding the same simple white string. Capturing these photographs is an ongoing process, we will continuously add to this collection throughout the duration of ArtPrize. An exhibit of 7-20 portraits can be available to mount horizontally on a wall. The prints will be 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 would like to showcase string portraits that we take on a daily basis throughout Grand Rapids on a TV monitor. People and countries represented in this exhibit include, but are not limited to: Asia, Africa, Europe, North, and Latin America.
