Welcome to 1 Un(b)read Message: The collaborative art book about internet harassment.
Welcome to 1 Un(b)read Message: The collaborative art book about internet harassment.

1 Un(b)read Message is the passion project turned to a global effort to shed light on the growing problem that is internet harassment. We take instances vulgarity and harassing language through social media and text messages, and interpret them into beautiful eye-opening pieces of art. 

 

Along with beautiful paintings, embroidery, digital art, and drawings, 1 Un(b)read Message contains unique original bread-burned text art.

 Our fantastic team of artists has created an incredible compilation of differing styles: using embroidery, digital painting, photography, illustration, and so much more.

 Each page contains the direct quotes of these harassers, and contrasts them with their chosen medium. Each of our colorful pages has the unique touch and influence of that individual artist. 

"You should grow your hair out like a woman should, and stop being rebellious." One example of the several instances of unsolicited comments and harassment received by individuals on the internet.

 Much like the wall of selfies donated to the page above, we have had an enormous amount of donated personal instances from men and women all over the world. It is incredible to know there are so many supporters, but it is bittersweet to think they have all been victims too. With your help, we can share their stories.

 Not only do we contain original one of a kind artwork, but we also have several interviews from both professionals on this topic, and victims of online harassment. This book's beautiful artwork is balanced with the black and white facts and accounts of harassment.

Risks and challenges

1 Un(b)read Message has received so much love and support, as well as inquiries to become artists for the cause, that it is now in the final stages of production. The only pages left to design, are the pages awarded for the Kickstarter rewards!

This book has its official ISBN code, copyright filed, printer selected, and website established. All the rewards are packed and ready to ship. All that is left, is the printing and shipping of the book: which is where Kickstarter comes in!

Not only is everything set up and ready to go, but this is Chelsea Cantrell's second self publishing endeavor. The first, being another art book.

All we need is your help to fund the project to be printed and shipped to you.
