The Bugs Project
is an on-going collaboration between Patrick Vincent
and interested participants. In this project I am asking
people to submit a photo of their faces so I can supplant it
on a bug (insect or arachnid) of their choice. The resulting
image will be carved in linoleum.
does Patrick Vincent want to make everyone into a bug?
I want the carvings, as I use these linoleum carvings as sculptures and installation elements. The theme of bugs is an invitation for people to connect with a part of the natural world that is often ignored or reviled.
Patrick Vincent gets the carving, what do I get?
As a participant you will receive a hand-printed artist's proof of the resulting carving, as the carving is a printable matrix.
right, I'm convinced. Sign me up.
Send a photo of your face, however you wish to be presented, to TwinBeePress[dot]Bugs[at]gmail[dot]com and in the body of the e-mail describe or name of the bug for your body. Feel free to look at the samples here to get a sense of what this looks like. You can click here for the PDF.
