Phil Hansen’s Text Art

Saturday, August 10, 2013

From crowdsourcing to crowdfunding, artist Phil Hansen spent a month in front of a LIVE webcam feed taking stories of limitations from people, and creating a 9×13ft work of art called Refraction, which is completely made out of text. Hansen just revealed his short documentary, funded through a successful Kickstarter campaign, which peeks into the creation process and follows the inspiring story of an 18 year old who’s about to shave her head.

Here’s what took place:

Over 1,000 Stories
Over 100 Sharpies
Over 100 Square Feet of Writing
Over 600 Gigs of Video
Over 1 month of Live Webcam
