About this project
Risks and challenges
The main challenge in building a mosaic is collecting enough pictures from the family. The quality of the final mosaic is directly related to the quantity and diversity of the individual photos that are used to make it. For this reason, I have built a collection of alternate photos which can used to supplement.
The next challenge is finding and contacting the families of a fallen soldier. I have found some websites that provide a list of fallen soldiers but they don't give contact information which I understand, so I will have to work on this.
The next challenge will be selecting the computer system and peripherals for a production environment. The monies raised from this project are needed for the following items:
1. Desktop computer needed to build and store the Mosaics;
2. Large format printer needed for printing the Mosaics;
3. Photo grade paper and ink supplies;
4. Purchase of frames for Mosaics;
5. Purchase of Domain and website hosting;
6. Shipping cost of Mosaics to families.
I started a free website subscription on wix.com but it's just a start. The URL is: http://cazman7.wix.com/mosaicsforheroes
