Can Renderosity artists break a world record for charity?
Have you ever fancied becoming a world record breaker? Do you enjoy helping others? Well here’s your chance! Renderosity has joined forces with a global art alliance to try to create the world’s largest ever artistic collaboration.
So what’s it all about?
How can you create a true snapshot of our global society, and sum up its diversity in one single picture? Simple. Get together one million people from all around the world, and get them to work on the picture together in the world's largest ever artistic collaboration - a collaboration where everyone is equal, where all outcomes are valid. Nobody knows what will happen when one million people create a single work of art because nothing like it has ever been tried. Will the result be a crazy patchwork of individual images? Will some larger picture emerge from the chaos? Let's find out!
How it works
We are looking for as many Renderosity members as possible to join the project and create a small square image, using the online drawing tools provided. Your image will be just one of one million images that will make up the entire picture - The One Million Masterpiece.
You need to create your image online, but what you choose to draw is completely up to you. You can choose to make your picture fit in with the surrounding pieces or make it stand out by using a preview feature that shows your image with the context of your neighbors. You can change your image at any time if you don't feel happy with it, and you can exchange messages with your fellow artists using our community pages.
The complete picture is set to be printed and unveiled on World Population Day 2007 as a symbol of global unity.
The first step to achieving this goal is to smash the current world record of 25,297 contributors to a single artwork. We think that with the help of the Renderosity community we can hit that target by Christmas – so get on over there and make your mark! We’ll be reporting on how many of our members have become record breakers very soon!
