    An Artrage Zoomquilt?

    if any of you have not seen the amazing zoom quilt project, i suggest you go and look at this now

    a collaborative artwork adventure,

    what it will involve is creating an image in artrage of a specific shape, namely:
    a rectangle with a rectangular hole cut in the middle, lets set the size to:

    1024x768 pixels with a hole in the middle of 512x384 pixels (half the dimensions),
    you will then paint an image in the area outside the hole.
    and it then passes to the next person who then doubles the size of the image to 2048 x 1536 pixels and puts a 512x384 pixel hole in the middle, and paints in the area between the original artwork and the hole they places in the middle
    and you then crop off the portion you recieved and pass it to the next person and so on for as many as we feel like

    then for the final piece the original image is shrunk to fix the hole and they are joined in to a loop and compiled into a flash animation for all to view

    obviously this will take a bit of organisation, but if you're interested i'd love to know as i've been wanting to find some people to collaborate on such an artwork since i saw it many years ago, perhaps this is the place?
    i never knew i was so empty that i could be so full...

    I have that zoom quilt project thing saved somewhere; it's amazing innit? Sounds like a cool project to me, but won't zooming in on raster graphics be problematic? The Flash thing works because they don't lose quality when zooming in; we would. Thoughts?

    justG the original zoomquilt is all raster images actually, it's a series of jpegs, since they're higher resolution than you'd generally see them on the screen you don't notice it. it uses the method i described above.

    Y'know I was wondering how they did that.
    It sounds like a fantastic idea, thesleepless.

    good question, i guess we need someone to start it off, i could do that, unless someone else would prefer to?

    list of interested people seem to be so far:

    thesleepless
    maror
    justG?
    sweeney?

    hopefully more people will join in once we've got something to show
