In my post this morning, I mentioned as an afterthought the interactive online competition to create the imaginary biography of Man Ray. After investigating further, I happened upon this page of the competition which illustrates more precisely how it works. Each week, the organizers have released a Man Ray image with a set of questions to be answered. The following week, viewers have been asked to comment and/or vote on the submissions. At the end of the competition, Man Ray’s fictitious life story will be pieced together from the winning weekly submissions, and an overall winner will be selected. I don’t know if there’s still time to submit a story for the latest image (I don’t think so), but there is ample time to comment and vote. It sounds like even comments will be considered for prizes, which are—inconveniently for those of you in the U.S.—free tickets to the exhibit. Nevertheless, an interesting idea.
What is it?The Daily Cure for me is trying to smell taste touch—really experience— something, each day, that reminds me that I'm alive and, mostly, happy to be here. A small moment that should go a long way, at least in theory.
