Barter: Pictures of blue sky wanted (an ongoing project)
Participatory project (active 2012-14)
I want to look at a blue sky—this is what Hong Kong lacks. These photos were shown in Hong Kong and London, England before, and will be shown in different locations in the future.
Through barter, I trade ‘art’ without the use of money as a medium of transaction. This way of exchange also offers a lot more than money-based transactions can offer—experiences in negotiation as well as getting to know people what people think about exchanging photos and something about places I've never heard.
To view what photos I've collected, visit: https://blueskypicturesbarter.blogspot.com/?view=flipcard
In addition, I would like to demonstrate ‘art-as-an-experience’ through this project where people can participate, become an art project collaborator, and be acknowledged for their contribution to the project.
This art experience—together with its inspiration—can start with something as simple as taking a picture of a blue sky and giving it to someone who wants it and will give you another photo in return.
Come trade a blue sky photo you took for a waterfront photo by me. (Of course you are welcome to trade more than 1 picture with me) You can pick your favorite from the 11 pictures i took in either Berlin or Hong Kong. (See the above contact sheet of waterfront pictures.These pictures are all taken by me.)
This is also a great opportunity for those who’d like to collect photos in black and white as almost all the images by me are in this category.
