WHISPER Gallery I: New Curation Initiative for Artists and Creatives

I am starting a new initiative called Whisper on Monday. If any of you know of the game Chinese Whispers AKA Telephone, this is a take on that.

Chinese Whispers or Telephone

This is a common children's game where theres a line or circle formed of people. One person has a piece of verbal information (usually one phrase) that they take and whisper it into the person's ear next to them. The circle of people go around whispering the phrases they hear around in a circle until the very end. Then the original and the end results are compared. Usually errors occur and the original phrase gets altered to a state that's comical.

What is Whisper?

To create a chain of artistic creations that are initiated by a seed idea/art piece (one piece of artwork inspires the next piece, and so on).
[Imagine the interpretations based on interpretations not limited to any artistic genre (painting, animation, architecture, film, music, photography, dance). A painted portrait could be interpreted into a building by an architect, then into a shoe by a shoe designer, etc. The interpretations can transcend art and connect people.]

Please excuse the extremely rough drawings in the following example.

The Cycle for Gallery I

The way it goes:

Seed will be chosen or written by someone in the Steemit Community.

Artist I creates a piece of art in whatever style that artist chooses that is inspired by the Seed.

Artist II creates a piece of art in whatever style that artist chooses that is inspired by Artist I's piece.

So with this, we get a chain of creativity, inspiration, and building the curation trail with it.

For Gallery I, we're looking at 15 candidates ideally. We have several signed up already, so the more interest and support from artists the better.

Artists in Gallery I

As an artist in Whisper Gallery I, we will expect a writeup of a few paragraphs describing the process or inspiration elements you chose and why. You will have 6 full days to complete the piece.

Weekly Curation Report

We will be writing up a weekly curation report highlighting what the artist of the week created and talked more about their process. We will also introduce the artist who will be creating the next weeks piece.

Participants of Whisper Gallery I will be eligible for a @sndbox up-vote as well as support from many of the successful Artists and Steemians on the chain.


Helping Build an Art Community

We want to collectively build an art community. This is a great way to connect us, support each other through up-votes, comments, and follows. Steemit can be a slow-growing platform for creatives starting out, and the future goal is to roll this into a community event where people can be perpetually submitting to the chain.

How do I sign up?
