Think I just fell upon a very different way of developing a Little People set. If I ask people on Facebook if I can use their images to create a series of poses of them to be changed into little people stickers how does this alter the meaning? For one they are consenting rather than simply being snapped as in the other pictures. The images have no physicality to me, having being uploaded by others and documenting a time and a location I may not have witnessed. My only experience of it is through the screen. Each person may appear in a sticker set several times or a sticker set may be dedicated entirely to them. This must mean something about celebrity, prolification of our image and how we mediate this through such spaces as facebook.
Working on a new set of Little People stickers gathered from cities. Will head off later today armed with tiny envelopes of said people and a camera to place the little ones around the village of Cuddington and Sandiway. Maybe there will be a prize of a signed print or something if people manage to find one and photograph it for themselves.
