PORTRAIT VANCOUVER - VIEW FULL
website & guerilla marketing campaign / 2005
Portraitvancouver.com was a participatory artwork in which random people were needed and invited to aid in its completion. I advertised the site through word of mouth and with large sticker graffiti I pasted around UBC. Any digitize-able media was welcomed on any subject matter as long as the artist felt that it is somehow linked to Vancouver (and wasn't a complete bullshitter/spammer).
Artist statement: By presenting artwork about Vancouver through multiple artistic perspectives, the piece creates a mosaic simulacra reflecting the diverse mosaic of Vancouver culture. Together we can create a mixed aesthetic of nature, beauty, culture, technology, and the marginalized aspects of Vancouver to contribute to a collective portrait of our city and home.
