The Internets Are Leaking of the Day: Teenagers visiting the Coca Cola Village amusement park were handed an RFID bracelet into which they could enter their Facebook login info, allowing them to “like” various attractions and activities throughout the park.
Visitors could also auto-tag themselves in any photo taken by an on-site photographer simply by flashing their bracelet.

So did you just start this? I'm still a little confused, but I haven't watched your video yet. From what I do understand, I think it is an absolutely great idea in theory. I just don't get if you are asking for artist work, on a postcard, to make into a larger piece. Or what is really going on as far as what you need from me. I can't offer financial help, being a starving artist myself.
I am excited to find out how I can be a part of this. In high school, I was part of a Guinness World Record for the Worlds Largest Brownie. I designed the certificate that everyone who was involved in the project received to prove they were a part of the World Record. It was a nice certificate, it had everyone's name printed on it and everything. But I thought it was funny when I got my own certificate, with my name on it. Having the file on my computer and all, it seemed a bit unnecessary. It was a great feeling being a part of something that big (pun intended, lol).The Brownie was almost a big as our school gym. I would love to be a part of something like that again.
Sorry about the novel, but please let me know what to do! lol. And if you wish, please check out my tumbler page and/ or my gallery at: http://www.foundmyself.com/gallery/Casey
I am adding new pieces almost daily. I have a lot of large pieces to scan in, and I am working on a few projects right now. Mostly collage, but I also just started making hand carved rubber stamps from erasers. If you haven't yet, you should check out hand carved stamps. It looks like it would be very compatible with your style.
Oh COOL… I love your story.
Yeah - I’ve already Painted 4 sheets. Each sheet is 25 documented Postcard size Pieces waiting to be sent out. 25 DONE !75 Pieces in progress.
16 sheets on the table screaming for color and attention :-)
Subjects are progressing as I work and get inspired by people and ideas.
Viral Painting is me painting 400 sheets divided into 10,000 pieces. a crazy job alone. Entering for Guiness Record. And since you like that idea… Please see the video & Read : www.viralpainting.com
I added you on Facebook. I am looking at your art. Sometimes it might take time between replies. Its hectic to do Digital Communications and Paint in 1 24 hour day. Been going to bed a 4 am daily lately.
Also. Invite anyone & everyone to join. No need to finance for those that dont have resources. Facebook & Pass the links along & @ViralPainting twitter.
I hope you would like to be a part of this Art Record.
Creating Art is a simultaneous joyful and painful experience.
It is exhilarating to see thoughts come to life.
For me Viral Painting was always one of those impossible and improbable projects.
Mainly because it is hard to keep today’s audience focused on one thing longer than a few sentences.
How can I as an Artist produce something bigger than myself ?
What are the skills to sell without selling.
Who can be convinced to participate joyfully in such endeavor.
Many like the idea of a project.
By contrast, I have found that very few really understand the effort and
persistence that I have to give every waking moment to keep the passion and flame alive.
Multitasking might sound awesome as a word, unfortunately as an Artist working alone on all the aspects: Creating, Documenting, Marketing and Managing all aspects of Viral Painting as a project, looks to be a monumental task.
My only dream is that people could see that funding such a project goes beyond the simplicity of using color and achieving human interaction.
Viral Painting is representing a basic need to express the most valuable thing we have that we constantly take for granted :
Helping each other because we are all connected. Be it by our Human Genome or by our values as a Social Being.
Society and Groups are written within us.
I am just looking to add some color in the palm of your hand.
WHAT IS YOUR EARLIEST HUMAN MEMORY?
Dreaming of being One with All through Viral Painting.
