The Little House Project
How to participate:
Instructions from Kathryn Ross:
Download the template HERE. If you have trouble with this please email me (below) and I will send a PDF printable image to you.
Choose any light and thin material that you think might represent yourself the most.
Ask yourself some questions:
Do I consider myself to be a person who needs many other people around me to be happy? If so, you are probably a terraced house. If, on the other hand, you are someone who is very self-contained, you may consider yourself to be represented by a detached house.
What are the most important things about you – your openness and transparency, or your love of the written word or numbers? It could be anything, but must really be special to you. Are you complex and mysterious?
Then send me either:
Easy: just the piece of paper or material to make the house and I will make it
Medium: the house cut out and left flat for posting and I will put together
Hard: make the whole house and send it readymade.
Please make sure you include your name and country so I can add you to the contribution list.
Example Houses (see image below L to R):
1. represents an open and totally (literally transparent nature, nothing to hide) house.
2. is a political newspaper article
3. is made from very fragile squared tissue paper, the maker is perhaps vulnerable but the squared surface may indicate a logical streak to this person’s nature.
4. is white and squared paper, the sort you use for mathematical work.
You are only limited by your own imagination so do a bit of soul searching and think about what the essence of you is.
Email your digital image to Kathryn Ross: firstname.lastname@example.org or deliver to her at the gallery.
