Would anyone be interested to help me in a massive (global) art collaboration?

I was looking at the wall in my flat this evening and, well, it’s bare. I like the minimal look and all but maybe I’m taking it too far. So I decided to look at some prints online. I found nothing.

Then I had this idea; I could have a massive MaxMSP patch on my wall! Maybe I’m a mega geek, who knows, but I really am going to do this now. Now I could very well go ahead and do it myself but what I thought would be cooler if members of the max community contributed something?

It doesn’t have to be an actual patch, or maybe it can if you like I haven’t set any rules. You can just connect a load of random stuff together and make it aesthetically awesome. Or, you can post a proper patch with loads of comments on it and stuff – I really don’t mind. The only rule I do have is, if you do contribute, please leave your name or alias and country of location so I know who did what and I’ll label each section of the ‘uber patch’ when i stitch it all together.

When it’s finished (if it even gets started :p), I’ll upload it on my server and anyone can download and print off themselves. It won’t necessarily be in the colours of max though. Anyway, I’m aiming for 1-square meter which is like 7000 pixels each way at 200DPI. Still, I don’t think this is too ambitious.

If a few people are interested I’ll create a starting patch and maybe we can go from there. I really hope this gathers momentum as I think it would be really cool! If you know anyone who might be interested let them know!

I think many of us forum-ites qualify for the term mega-geek, it’s no bad thing! I would be up for trying to make something in a couple days after this pesky uni work is out of the way. If it’s assembled well it could actually look really cool!

Definitely check out Eric’s page, linked above. I’ve got one of his prints and it is awesome!

I thought it could be an original idea :-(
I need to wake up earlier!!
