Landfill Harmonic / The Recycled Orchestra

Landfill Harmonic / The Recycled Orchestra
This is 11 minutes of pure inspiration. “Landfill Harmonic” is an upcoming documentary about a tiny village called Cateura, built atop garbage, in Paraguay. More specifically it is about Luis Szaran, Favio Chavez Moran, and a group of children who play in an orchestra with instruments made of trash. I got a little emotional watching this.

First-Ever Booooooom Book!

We're making a book!

 

Hello friends!

Allow me to be the first to tell you that I am beginning work on the first-ever Booooooom book! The best part of it is that it’s gonna be published by one of my favourite publishers, Chronicle Books!

Chronicle Books has approached me to turn our Remake Project into a book. If you missed it, this was the project where we had everyone remaking masterworks of art as photographs.

The project was shared by hundreds of blogs and major news outlets including Huffington Post, Yahoo News, AOL, MSNBC, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, The MOMA, The Guardian (two different articles), Reader’s Digest, you get the idea. It was HUGE.

So what I want to do is turn all of your amazing submissions into an incredible art book. It is not gonna be cheap to produce this thing, doing this the right way means getting the image rights to reproduce all the classic works. Hopefully we will be able to secure the rights to 50 classic works.

As a contributor to this book you won’t be paid but you will receive two copies of the finished book. At the end of the day, the point of the book is for more people to see the amazing things you created. I also think it will just be cool to have this book as a piece of history – art history – and also Booooooom history.

If you would like to be considered for the book I would love it if you submitted! If you already made work that was featured in our gallery please re-submit it. If you are just hearing about this project for the first time and want to make something, you have until the end of January to submit work.

What I need from you is a signed release saying that we have permission to print your Remake in the book, as well as the highest resolution image that you have of your work.

 

1. Download the release form: here

2. Email the form and high resolution artwork with the subject line “REMAKE SUBMISSION” to: projects@booooooom.com.

Please include the following details:

YOUR NAME:

THE NAME OF ORIGINAL ARTIST:

TITLE OF ORIGINAL ARTWORK:

*In order to be published in the book the artwork needs to be as high resolution as possible. If the work is too big to email, please use a service such as WeTransfer.

 

We will notify you if your work has been selected for the book! Thank you all for being a part of this, I’m really excited to take it further than I’ve ever taken any of the projects.

Stoked for this!
