American Imagery Bank Official Mission Statement

The American Imagery Bank is a conceptual platform meant to serve as digital venue through which artists and viewers can interact. Its objective is to research, expand, and redefine visual identity through public participation and art production.

Section 1 Process >

1a Public Participation

Various questions are proposed to the general public with themes related to identity, social, and cultural philosophies. New questions will be proposed throughout the ongoing project. All are welcome to participate in as many surveys as desired.

Submissions will be reviewed and curated to ensure quality and variety.

1b Symbol Creation

The chosen submissions will be used to create visual symbols, which are then crafted into individual iconic images.

Eventually, each matrix that is created will be photographed and digitally cataloged on the official American Imagery Bank website.

1c Artwork Production

As matrices are completed they will be used to create fully realized art works. Each piece will be photographed and digitally cataloged. The prints will be displayed in various public exhibitions.

Follow the ongoing process on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
