Making Visible the Invisible

A Photographic Composition

Friday, July 23, 2010

New York City is a raw, unbridled and unique symphonic and polyrhythmic sonic landscape, but WHAT DOES THE NEW YORK CITY SOUNDSCAPE LOOK LIKE?  Hit us with your best shot and your photo could become a significant part of a city-wide photographic collaboration this August 2010 at The Greene Space.

Submit your artwork here by Friday, July 23, 2010 at 11:59 pm and your work will become a part of the digital photographic exhibition that will run the entire month of August 2010, projected in the store front windows of The Greene Space; seen by up to 3 million people en route to the Holland Tunnel each month.  Up to twenty (20) pieces will be selected by a panel of judges to be put on display in a year-long exhibition in The Greene Space--a great way to show off your work—from August 2010 to August 2011.  

Project Invisibility was made possible through the generous support of MetLife Foundation.

GUIDELINES FOR PHOTOGRAPHS:  Pieces will be reviewed with an eye to how the artist has chosen to best reflect the theme of “Making Visible the Invisible: A Photographic Score”.

All photographs will be reviewed; finalists will be put on flickr. Photographs will be part of a temporary exhibition and not for purchase.

HOW TO ENTER: Follow this link, fill out the form and upload up to ten (10) digital files of your photographs. Please make sure that each entry is labeled with your full name and photo title.  All entries must be received by 11:59 pm, Friday, July 23, 2010.
