A project where millions of people send in a picture of
their face that's used to form a pixel in a mosaic of a
flag. The faces are converted to black and white and
colors of the flag are added as appropriate, red, yellow
or green for Senegal for instance.
Mosaic pictures made up of other
pictures are quite
common, the differences with this are:
1- It's a group project, millions of people send their face
to be included in the mosaic available for the world to
view on line.
2- Those who send their picture in get a link that when
clicked, zooms in to the picture they've uploaded. They
can then manually zoom in and out, scroll around and
their fellow countrymen. They can also type in names
and search for who else joined in the project.
3- The resolution of this would be such that one pixel
might contain hundreds of thousands of people but could
be zoomed in on to reveal the individual faces. So a pixel
wouldn't actually contain the faces, it would be an
average of the faces leading to a database of the faces
making up that pixel that could be zoomed in and out of
at all the levels resolution necessary to put that much
info into one aggregate image.
This might be a nice project to remind people in
that are experiencing political turmoil, like most
do, that despite political differences, everyone on this
considers their country something special and is proud to
be a part of it.
Countries are people, not flags, maybe that would be the
Addendum: Charge money to be a part of this and put
that money towards charity. I'd opt for helping the
homeless, setting up or assisting living addiction
centers to help people hurt by the opioid or meth crisis,
but there are many worthy charities this might be able to
help fund in an entertaining way.
