For well over a year now Artist Karl Addison has had a dream - to fill an entire room in a urban public environment with pasted posters

About this project

The Project:

This Art Project is a dream I have had for well over a year.  Late in the summer of 2010, here in Berlin Germany I found the perfect location for the installation.  The dream is to cover an entire room with hand pasted & cut posters based on one of my drawings: "Baby Fatso."

Baby Fatso is a drawing I did a few years ago after returning from a trip to Tokyo, Japan.  The drawing was part of a series based on society commentary of over consumption.

In the middle of May, 2011 we started the installation after months of printing the artwork for the posters and cutting them out.  After roughly 2,500 posters we thought we were ready to paste and finish the installation.  However, after a few hours of work we realized the number needed was off by about 2,000.

To complete this Urban Art Installation we will need over 4,000 posters to cover the room.  And this is where we need your help.

During the installation this Urban Art Project we will be documenting the whole process in order to make a printed book about the project and a short film.

*As a bonus - I will also make a “Treasure Map” that will be given to contributors to find this room full of babies. 

The Plan: 

While this project is being funded we will keep working on this project to realize the dream.  The first step is the production of the additional 2,000 posters.

After the posters are cut and ready to be pasted we will go back to the room to finish the second half.  

Meanwhile with the installing, there will be filming and documenting the whole project. After the installation is complete work will begin on the Book and the Short Film.

Once this is completed, it will be all distributor to the contributors that helped this project along with the “Treasure Map” to see this room in person. 

Contribution: 

With your contribution and support it will provide the financing for the following:

Production Cost with making the Baby Posters, Glue/Paste, Brushes & other tools needed for the install 

Printing & Publishing Cost for the Documentation Book Producing & Publishing Cost for the Documentation Short Video.
