“We Found Art is an online project which will culminate in an offline exhibition in the summer of 2011. It explores notions of value and beauty in objects that have been lost, forgotten or discarded.
Participants are invited to post small found objects to the We Found Art HQ where they are catalogued and accessioned as they would were they to be joining a gallery or museum collection.
All of the objects submitted are professionally photographed, join an evolving online gallery and will be presented in the offline exhibition. Participants are also invited to add their thoughts, stories, photographs, sound clips and films relating to the act of collecting to the We Found Art blog.
We Found Art is a not for profit unfunded project that relies on the generosity of all involved. It was founded and is managed by arts and education consultant Katie Smith to better understand how web 2.0 technology is affecting the creation, distribution and consumption of the arts and its relationship with the live experience.
We Found Art is a project best done with others.”
