The artist has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a new idea: the creation of a unique tapestry showing all aspects of life in the 21st century. It can be seen as the modern equivalent of the Bayeux Tapestry and is a chance to provide a physical snapshot of our time for future generations. They will include photos and other memoirs to capture life as it currently exists, and are opening the invitation for contributions through the Kickstarter campaign as well.
According to the artist, “Life today can be beautiful, it can be hard, it can be painful. It can create opportunity for us, and it can destroy us. I want to share our story here on earth at the beginning of the 21st century. I want to capture the essence of our being in all its different ways.” They note that they want everyone to have a chance to contribute to this tapestry of modern life by contributing a photo of choice. “I want to create a 21st century tapestry, showing our place in the world and our place in history,” notes the artist.
The tapestry will contain two elements: an indexed, searchable, and catalogued digital replica of the physical tapestry and a single print run of the entire tapestry. The indexed version will be hosted online and will be browseable using mobile phones and tablets as well as desktop computers. The print tapestry will be exhibited in various locations around the world to be determined at a later date.
As seen at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/behrsin/tapestry-life-on-earth, the Kickstarter campaign offers pledge levels from £1 to £5,000, with rewards including reserved spots in the life tapestry to feature photos and other products, or a VIP invitation to the premiere of the tapestry itself.
