The World’s Largest Pasting: JR’s Latest Work Captured in this Stunning Film

The French port of Le Havre is run solely by men, dockers whose work has been passed down from father to son for generations. The first image, of the three men in shipping containers represents three generations of the same family. JR chose this specific location to continue his Women Are Heroes project, creating a giant image of a woman’s eyes on a 363-metre long container ship. It took 2,600 sheets of paper to complete the image, which will travel all the way to Malaysia.

The artwork brings the first woman to the port, and the film pays tribute to all the men who helped create it. Watch filmmaker Guillaume Cagniard’s gorgeous document of the project, “Rivages”, below!

december-600

Here is this month’s submission post! Thanks to everyone who submitted work to the November Submissions post. Nearly 1200 comments on the post, so I’m definitely still going through all the good stuff shared there.

This is the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Thanks again to everyone for up-voting work you like and leaving the positive comments to each other, it really pumps people up, and helps me see what work you like. I encourage you to share your work here because these posts get a lot of traffic and even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen, and definitely sends traffic to your own websites.

Please share your work here this month. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

 

Submission guidelines:

1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
