Hello everyone.

Let's make art. Let's make a family photo?

My name is Polina and I am a student in New York Film Academy where I study photography.
We have an assignment to create The Event and photograph it. We should follow the example of such great artists as Erwin Wurm ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erwin_Wurm ), Zhang Huan ( http://www.zhanghuan.com ), David Shrigley ( http://www.davidshrigley.com ) or even Marcel Duchamp.
The idea of this assignment is to construct The event with only one purpose - strictly to be photographed.

I myself explore theme of loneliness in the New York city. It's all because I came here from Russia six months ago and miss my family and friends a lot, but I prefer to put this energy in my art.
So, I decided that my event will be a Family photo. I want to gather people whom I don't know at all and probably will never see again, and I would like to ask you guys to pretend my family for 5 minutes so I could take a snapshot in this family-album style with happy smiling faces of my fake family.

I would like to make this a long term project of mine. And I would be very glad if you decide to participate and help with my research.

If you interested in making art and you have 5 minutes of your time which you could spend with me, please, come
on 6/4/2013 (this Tuesday) at 7:30 pm to the Brooklyn Bridge park to the pier where the East River ferry stops.
