Sew it yourself

Just today, I was able to get to know a project that fits perfectly to the scope of this blog:

The Man With a Movie Camera: The Global Remake

Quote from the site:
Man With a Movie Camera: The Global Remake is a participatory video shot by people around the world who are invited to record images interpreting the original script of Vertov’s Man With A Movie Camera and upload them to this site. Software developed specifically for this project archives, sequences and streams the submissions as a film. Anyone can upload footage. When the work streams your contribution becomes part of a worldwide montage, in Vertov’s terms the “decoding of life as it is”.
I found it on the Ars Elecronica site, just browsing around.

Side note: Happy coincidence my wife makes handmade dolls besides her main work, restoration of pottery and paintings. Occasionally we have to work side-by-side but the connection was not evident to me.
