Project #1 – Instructions!

Okay ladies and gentlemen, to celebrate the launch of the new site we have our very first project! The concept is simple. Take a photo of the sunset. That’s it! There is a submission form at the end of this post. I will gather up submissions and create a gallery of your submitted work. Be sure to include your name, email, and website so other visitors can see who made what!

You can always access the latest project by clicking on it in the sidebar, and keep your eyes open for the gallery to pop up (once we recieved some submissions)! The point of these projects is to build up a community of people who are inspired to go out and do creative things, as well as provide an outlet for those people to show the world what they have created! Of course there will always be daily bits of creative news posted on the site, but hopefully these little interactive projects become a source of real inspiration for you! I look forward to your submissions!

Submit your own entry!

Best of Kickstarter: The Kinetic Art Table

Motion-control artist Bruce Shapiro’s “Sisyphus” is an incredible sand drawing machine that creates elaborate patterns using magnets (click here for previous post). While several installations have been set up in countries around the world, Shapiro is now working toward a version people can enjoy in their own homes! See more images and information about this Kickstarter below!
