A BIG thanks to gkaufman of the Monthly Scavenger Hunt who whipped off a program to generate labels for all the photos. Each photo will be tagged with the title, flickr photographer’s name and where in the world the photo was taken.
After a lot of back and forth trying to figure out the best way to print our photos with maximize resolution, consistency, and to minimize cropping, I finally decided to print all images at 2″x3″. This will allow us to easily hang up to 15 photos per tree without them catching the wind and blowing down the river immediately.
I may be doing a little packing tape lamination on them as well, since the weather in New Brunswick has been very wet and windy lately, and I’d like the photos to hold up for more than a day or two. Besides it would give me something use to hang them without punching a hole in the photos.
We have photos from Taiwan, Brooklyn, Istanbul, Melbourne, Cincinnati, Zurich, The Netherlands and even… gasp… Etobicoke. Sandy even submitted a couple of dad’s hot dog stand on the river from the late ’80s.
Now, cross your fingers that I get good weather, because there are some trees to be put in the ice before we can start hanging the installation!
p.s. keep an eye on www.unsweetened.ca to see what’s happening over the next week. I’ll be posting exclusively from my cellphone since it’ll be my only internet access.
