In architecture, bigger has always been better. Whether in homage to the gods, heroes of war, or a beloved variety of hamburger, the monumental replica is the mode of recognition par excellence. Skipping frills and fanfare, the level of recognition has been measured first and foremost by the immensity of scale. Today, 'going viral' is a new standard by which the scale of influence is calculated. Here at Reality Cues, we want the whole shebang. The Monumental Competition is about making architecture in digital, interactive, and social media, where little things can become very, very big and big things become monumental. You decide who or what needs to be memorialized in epic proportions and our jury will decide what goes viral, because let's face it, size matters.
The Proposal is Simple: Make the most provocative monumental JPEG or Animated GIF using the subject matter of your choice. Image Submission Requirements: Please email your submissions to the Reality Cues Librarian (firstname.lastname@example.org) in JPEG or GIF formats, at 900xp wide. Include a title and your name to be posted along with your image. Multiple entries can be submitted. All submissions will be published at www.realitycues.com.
