Art Project concerning Iraqi & American concepts of change & freedom (Baghdad)
Please contribute to a new online art project called Shape of Change investigating Iraqi and American concepts of political change, independence and freedom. The project will begin with questions about the above subjects in an online form. The resulting answers will be publicly available in an open content data base, to be interpreted by artists and activists in creative projects as they see fit. As content accumulates and evolves in response to political events, visualizations of the data featured on the site will function as evolving representations of change.
The theme of change was ubiquitous throughout the US presidential campaign, and now that we have a new president, the need to discuss what these terms actually mean is imperative. The piece will explore how and if these concepts differ across cultures, and how desire for them is manifested or displaced.
