Napoleon Brousseau “collect me” for New York Art show,

Napoleon Brousseau  and the Seed collective.net  www.seedcollective.net

Something I came across called ARTISTS WANTED, do you know about this?

check it out.

http://napoleonbrousseau.artistswanted.org/atts2012 – COLLECT ME

so you get to “Collect”  your favourite artists work. They are entered into a jury by popularity and the prize is your work shown in Times Square. sounds like fun!

GO and press “COLLECT  ME” for Napoelon  BROUSSEAU’S WORK, and I’ll tell you why, its not just that this is a brilliant art work. His work is not about vanity.  You get to collaborate and co-create  with this art . By using your cell phone you get to grow a virtual seedling into a very very artistic tree; there’s a Meat tree, an Ancestor Tree, etc.  with his art piece http://www.seedcollective.net  shown above. You get to download the image of the tree you created. But the best part, the icing on the cake, or tree in this case,  is that your interraction is  funded by various company’s to plant real trees.

Napoleon  already envisioned the Times square showing years ago, hence the photoshopped  pic.

So a vote for Napeoleon’s dream coming true ni Times square is a vote for you making your own dreams come true.

Do you have a vision board or a dream board? What goes around comes around.

How the heck do artists’ think of these things?

More about Napoleon.Yes that’s his real name, { very common French Canadian name from Quebec }  Napoleon’s  seed collective is an  art installation that plants trees. Yes and it has done so in China, Australia, New Orleans, Baltimore, Vermont, Toronto Canada and at the 2010 winter Olympics in Vancouver. and is headed to London and Paris in the near future.

The seedcollective was Napoleon’s brainchild sprouting from a seed of a former New Media project from 2001. Napoleon and his colleagues created the first cel phone driven art interface ever in the world, at the Canadian Film Center in Toronto at the Bell New Media  Lab, that prototype, called SWAMP was shown at Siggraph in Los Angeles in 2001. In 2005 the seedcollective was premiered at the SCOPE Art fair in New York.

Seventh Generation, the long-standing eco company from Vermont, backed Napoleon to help fund Replant New Orleans in 2006 using the seedcollective as the vehicle.  Seedcollective was a web enabled cel phone interactive interface at the time, also a world’s first. Hundreds of trees were planted in New Orleans as a result of users interactions with seed.

Seedcollective.net is currently being shown since January – April 22 Earth Day at the McMichael Art Gallery, in Kleinburg, Ontario, outside of Toronto. The McMichael is the home of the Group of Seven Canadian art collection,which recently toured  London England, seee review here
