To perform this project one essential skill is to keep a final image unit, an accurate work is required to convert all the images received, mainly to convert the white background of all chains uniformly to cristalline white and preserve the original colors of submitted works.
After this online exhibition, on November 2012, the project will migrate to be seen in São Paulo at A CASA museum of Brazilian object. This time, with the real pieces, as well as invited designers.
My grant request will be destined for the professional treatment of the images received by the artists and those images will be used to design the catalog,
Below, an example that ilustrates the image treatment needed to apply in mostly all works. (chain by Roberto Zanon).
