Welcome to Kismet Mosaic!

A community project mosaic idea

Posted by Juanita Canzoneri on

A few years ago I was contacted by a local group who was hosting an event. They wanted a mosaic project they could have their participants make.

We brainstormed some ideas and hit upon the following project. They would work together during random free periods to create the logo for the event, which would then hang in someone's office.

To prepare for this project I took their event logo and sized it to 2' tall by 4' wide.

Then, in Photoshop, I worked the image up into color areas to get an idea of how much tile we would need in each area.

and then laid an 8mm grid over the image.

This image was then sent to FedEx to print in 2 2'x2' halves. 

I glued the printouts onto 2 boards measuring 2' x 2'. 

We came up with a color palette for the project and provided the group with 8mm tiles in various mixtures for each area.

The 2 boards were put out in the common area of the building during the event and participants glued tile into the grid when they had free time. 

Sadly, I can't find any photos of the project in progress or completed. If they pop up somewhere I'll amend this blog post. (I know I should have written this post at the time this all happened.)
