Worldwider Main Roll

worldwider-roll-4


Concept:

The Worldwider Roll is a Paper roll over 5 metres in length. Multiple artists will work on this piece, using absolutely what ever medium they feel happy with; painting, drawing, or even sewing next to and onto each others work. Once an artist finishes they send the piece by mail to the next artist. The topic for this piece is ‘What makes me unhappy about the society I live in.’

Worldwider Food 1

world-wide-food-4r


Concept:

The Worldwider Food is a slighty different strand to this project. Topic being the ‘Food of you country’ and Each Artist using food in their work. As this piece is sent around it will get older and some work may even start to mold. A project with an expiry date some might say.

Worldwider Food 2

Concept:

As Worldwider Food 1 was so successful we decided that we would start another one. This time we hope it gets a lot more messier though so we can really make a stink.

Worldwider Fax

worldwiderfax-4

About:

Worldwider Fax runs on the same topic as the Worldwider Roll but takes a different postal route. Fax is almost a forgotten method of communication but it is surprising to see how many places actually use it. This a great project as our work is greatly manipulated by the transmission process, bringing a sense of mechanical mystery to the final outcomes.

Worldwider Admirer

admirer-4-worldwider


About:

This project is maybe slightly more risky than the others but the outcomes could potentially be incredibly inspiring for all Artists involved. The piece is created by each Artists sending it to one of their favorite artists to collaborate with them. No matter how famous they are. It will be interesting to see how the artists favorites react to this and whether they are kind enough to take it further. The topic here is different, each artist must illustrate a story that was top of the headlines the week they a working on the piece.

Worldwider Foam & Worldwider Polystyrene

jpaeg-olyesters-4


About:

These two projects are about testing the process we rely on to create the Worldwider project. How will the mail services of the world cope when strange unconventional forms of post come through. A piece of Foam and two pieces of Polystyrene are the materials used in these projects. As you know polystyrene is very breakable so onces again, how will the transmission process manipulate the imagery? On the polystyrene the artist must draw a self-portrait whereas on the Foam it is the same topic of ‘What makes me unhappy about the society I live in.’

Worldwider Battle Roll

battlerollnearski-4


About:

This project is more of a less serious one. Created for a bit of fun really. Each artist builds and army of characters on the Roll of Paper and then challenges an Artist to a battle. The artist challenged then must try their hardest to kill off the previous army and create one of their own. Above you can see the deadly Nearski Soldiers. : )

The Worldwider Box 1

box-worldwider-4


About:

Each artist paints on the inside of the box. The box is then folded back up and sent on to the next artist. The interesting part – before sending the box the artist must place some materials… open paint, ink etc… (something that makes a mark) into to the box, close it and then send it. This way it is the transmission, the motion, of the package being sent which will create a background for the next artist. This again is a high risk piece of work as the outcomes are out of our control, artists should not get too attached to there own work, just let the motions make the work.

Concept:

A little bit more complicated than previous Worlwider Projects but the outcomes have the potential to be brilliant. China di Keme of Italy is the projects creator, it works just as dominos, check in previous blog posts for full explanation.
