I am starting a body positive art project, and I need your help!
For this project I will be asking willing participants (friends, tumblr followers, family, etc) to send me images of their breasts (I am starting with breasts but plan on also doing a tummy and bum project too) to create a grid of anonymous body parts in all different shapes, sizes, colors, ages, etc.
The end result should look like a floral pattern or geometric design, but upon further inspection is actually a few hundred pictures of different kinds of boobs/bellies/butts. I will be gum-printing small grids initially, and screen-printing large ones on scarves that you can wear (!!!), or hang on your wall. The example above is only a small portion of what is to come.
They do not have to be good quality, and can be taken with cellphones/laptop cams/etc. The only thing I ask is that they are only of the specific body-part, although I can do some more specific cropping if you do not have that ability.
The ideal image of your breasts should be from around your collar bone to anywhere under your breast. But do keep in mind these images are cropped to squares, and can use a bit of room around and underneath the breast to ensure nothing gets cut-off.
The more I can accumulate, the better, so spread the word that this is a positive, uplifting environment for self-love, and anyone who wants to participate can. If you identify with having breasts - you’re in!
Every participant will remain anonymous but don’t worry, no one will be able to tell anyone else apart. I will also accept anonymous emails, if you’re feeling shy.
If you are comfortable with this idea, please send images to TooFatToBeHipster@gmail.com, or message me privately on tumblr (nothing will ever be published publicly).
You can also reblog this to help me spread the word! Thank you so much in advance for your support and participation.
ya’ll know i love to show off my melons so i’ll for sure be sending in like……80 pictures to my babygirl like, tomorrow
