Global Art Project: "FLID - The Partition Of The World"
by Gruppe Or-Om
If you percieve any part of the world, you have to use your senses, your phantasy and certain concepts some of which you have in your mind from beginning of your live and some of which you have learned in your society. The concepts are like scissors, cutting parts out of the Whole and creating a kind of reality. Every cut entails a kind of brutal arbitrariness and violence. The history of sciences, arts, religions, technologies, economies and social systems is a history of violent sequences of arbitrary partitions of the world culminating in the postmodern crisis of incompatible pluralities. The total world, the universe, all products of science, art, cultures and social formations in history, presence and future will be re-divided by partitions consisting only of parts called FLID connected with an index.
Invitation and Call for Entries
Everybody is invited to contribute this new reflexive partition by own samples of partition submitted at www.flickr.com/groups/flid or www.flickr.com/photos/flid using flickr for uploading the artworks or sending the picture, with or without FLIDs to email@example.com . If you have your picture at a flickr-account click the "Send to Group" button between the foto title and the photo. Then choose our Group: "Global Art Project: The Partition Of The World" and you're done! You should add personal information and references or website address.
How can you make a FLID-sample? Take any picture or any content, you can save as JPG or GIF. Design the new partition and FLID-sections in a graphic program and save the file at a flickr.com account or at your private hard drive.
Which index numbers should you use for your FLID-Partition images? Please look for the last uploaded index numbers and continue the numeration there for your FLID-Contribution
