We would like to invite you to become our co-author in the project "A>Quaint>City".
This work was born as an exchange of artistic impulses and it seems to us that you will give us something new based on your experience and your vision of the world.
The theme of this "city" will be music.
You have to take seven walks everyday from your house and take pictures of all the digits that you'll meet on your way.
We think it's better to do it for a short period of time, for example, in one week. Density of actions always turns into some new quality. Of course, we would very much welcome it, if you wrote down your impressions and thoughts from every walk.
It does not matter if the figure is repeated or not, take a picture of it. It does not matter whether it's big or small, standing alone or surrounded by its own kind - take pictures of it. Maybe you'll see that things are digits, that clouds form numbers; there are no rules - take pictures of whatever you want.
It can even be an quantity - for example, steps, something that suddenly drew your attention.
The only important moment is that we need to be able to understand what digit did you capture. When you get seven rows of photos with numbers, send them to us and we will make music out of it for you.
We would also like to ask you to record sounds during these walks. You can record the whole trip in a row, or you can record the sound whenever you take a picture of the figure - we do not know. It is important to get two rows - numbers and sounds. The main role in search for music in this case, is given to chance. However, we are sure that chance is indispensable when you need to abandon reflection and move on to action.
