In honor, and in anticipation, of Invisible Illness Awareness Week (http://www.invisibleillnessweek.com/), which is September 13 to September 19, 2010, Maria of My Life Works Today and I are collaborating on a project.
So many of us have invisible illnesses, so our goal with this project is to make the invisible visible.
So what are you waiting for? Grab a paper bag, get creative, and show us your pics. Submit pics to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, and/or post on your own blog and share the link with us.
A few things to keep in mind:
- NO plastic bags. Paper ONLY.
- We know that many of you, including ourselves, may have more illnesses than fit on the paper bag, so put whatever feels most salient for you. This isn’t a competition. It’s simply a chance to get creative and take a stand against the invisibility of invisible illnesses.
Check out my blog and Maria’s (http://mylifeworkstoday.com/) for examples.
The inspiration for this project was taken from various website sources on the late Saul Steinberg’s work from the 1950’s and 1960’s (http://www.saulsteinbergfoundation.org/).
You can find more of his work at the Inge Morath Foundation, Martha Stewart's website, and/or by simply searching Google images.
