Ivan Cash introduces "Strangers Drawing Strangers," an interactive art installation inspired by his Selfless Portraits project, in the Airbnb Haus at Sundance Film Festival 2015.
Here’s how it works: After your Polaroid is taken, you place the photo in an envelope along with a card that includes your name, hidden talent, and Instagram handle. (The Instagram handle allows the artist and the subject of the drawing to connect online.) Next, you go to the nearby card catalog drawer and pull out an envelope that was left by a stranger. Then you head to the art table, where a bevy of supplies—pencils, crayons, markers, scissors—are at your disposal. Once you’re finished, you pass off your art to Ivan and his team, who will display the Polaroid and art together on the wall. The gallery is ever-changing as new works are constantly completed and the pictures are rotated through.
