Like water for the desert, New Media for New Mexico

Archive for January, 2015

Cool way to get your photos out, and do something cool too!

Lets do some shadows people!! I am friends with these folks:

Shadow People Project was inspired by the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, where thousands of people were blown away, leaving only their shadows printed by heat on streets, bridges, walls, and granite steps. These shadow people were the first to be rendered faceless and nameless by a nuclear weapon, but they were neither the first nor the last people rendered shadows by a great power.

 

The Shadow People Project is designed to bring shadow people out of the shadows, to fill the dark night with millions of tiny stars to let the world know we are HERE and care about what’s happening to us, to each other, and to our planet. 

 

We strive to connect people by building a community that not only follows the Shadow People Project, but also inspires them to create their own social movements towards a better world.
