stijn zegt hey

I started my project on Hyves in May 2008. Hyves is a social networking tool like facebook, friendster and linkedin.

I asked people, initially unknown to me, to be my friend. If they accepted and added me to their group of friends, I was allowed to see the photographs in their profile. From these I picked one.

I then copied this photo with brushes and ink. After the drawing was finished, I made a digital image of it, which I posted on my own profile. Then I gave notice to my friend that his or her drawing was done. All drawings combined with the reactions and comments form one large work of art.

The drawings for the Stijn says Hey-project are on show at the Drawing Centre Diepenheim, together with two other series. You can visit the Centre all summer until the 2nd of september. http://www.kunstvereniging.nl/

The results of my new interactive project for members of the Kunstvereniging Diepenheim will be on view the 8th of July only, in Herberg de Pol in Diepenheim. There I will talk with curator Arno Kramer and participants in the project.  After the meeting the drawings will be donated to the Kunstvereniging Diepenheim and will be sold to help fund the Kunstvereniging.  The collection as a whole can be viewed on:  http://www.facebook.com/LuckyDipDiepenheim 11-07-2012 The sale was a big succes, 25 of 29 drawings were sold.
