The project will focus on sage members of the community and has the following elements:
Each participant will be interviewed / asked to verbally share stories and recollections & whatever else they want to say.
Each participant will be photographed to create a portrait. The other details of the portrait and how revealing it is will depend on the individual.
A website will be created. The website will have a page for each participant. Each page will include audio from interviews. Hopefully each page will also include old photos, mementos, texts, bios, poems and other relevant material contributing to a multimedia portrait.
The photographic portraits will be printed in large format and installed in various locations about town… ideally each portrait will be installed in a location that has particular resonance for the subject of the portrait, a location that features prominently in their audio or other material. Each portrait will have a QR code allowing viewers to use their smart phones to link to the internet page (the url will also be included for those without smartphones).
