Wild Things’ Forts!

I have joined forces with Weloveyouso (Spike Jonze & Co.) to bring you a very special Wild Things related project! Introducing the Wild Things’ Forts contest! If you built forts as a kid, this is for you!

Winner gets a “Wild Things” Edition XBOX plus a magnificent bus shelter-sized Where the Wild Things Are poster not available in stores!

Where The Wild Things Are is filled with references to building a world out of things from your everyday life and that’s exactly what we want you to do!

We want you to create a fort! Use garbage bags, tree branches, tablecloths, prosthetic limbs, wood, gold, whatever you got!

Snap a photo, and email it to me, here. This contest is now over.

If you need some inspiration, take a look at this photo series by Kelly Burgess. She asked people to construct forts and fill them with what they love.

Lancaster, Pennsylvania-based artist Paolo Del Toro’s collaboration with photographer Tifani Truelove, Baba of the Woods, is a wonderfully odd combination of sculpture, costume and photography. See more images from the series and selections of Del Toro’s handiwork below.
