In one of Ai Weiwei’s latest artistic ventures, he teams up with iconic artist Olafur Eliasson to create a crowd-based collaborative project titled ‘Moon’.
Within this interactive website, anybody sitting behind a computer can leave their mark on the ‘Moon‘. Of this collaborative piece, Weiwei and Eliasson explain:
“Touch the moon by drawing on it – a vision, doodle, statement, a greeting, thought. . . your drawing is a hinge between you, everyone else, and the universe.”
This work becomes something of a gigantic, universal graffiti wall, where virtual visitors from all over the world are invited to illustrate whatever they like onto this interactive canvas. This collaboration between each contributing artist allows for a way to connect to like-minded souls from all over the globe and be a part of something extraordinary.
“Celebrate with us the gathering of creative powers from around the globe to mark the passage from nothing to something and from thinking into doing. Savour this moment of transformation. Leave your fingerprint and see the shared moon grow as others reach out too. Let’s show the world that together our marks matter. Creativity defies boundaries.”
“Ideas, wind, and air no one can stop.”
