ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I only get a “suspended” message on that link. But I once bought a coffee table book as gift which had exactly this idea. People were photographed, had to fill out a form with their info & hobbies and stuff, and then dumped their bag’s containments for a photo…
Granted it didn’t have the photo, but my friend did this 10 years ago this week(!). Even got 15 minutes of ‘net fame for it.
“Via” link has an extra “http.”
This reminds me of an exhibit I saw at the Andy Warhol in Pittsburgh – there was a photocopier placed in the room, and you were expected to dump your purse onto it and photocopy it, then tack the copy to the wall. I, and all my friends, did, and it produced some beautiful images, and a fabulous collage on the wall.
There is a flickr group called “What’s in your bag?” which is based on a similar idea
Yeah, send a picture of yourself, along with the credit card that is in your pocket. Great idea. :-)
Maybe it will pay for their suspended hosting.
The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh has a similar exhibit, where you empty your pockets and then scan them.
