Suite: Film

[The Canopic Jar Suites are now inactive but remain available as part of our archives]

The prompt for the Film suite is open to liberal and organic interpretation — wherever the artist takes it or it takes the artist. We will post contributions as they are accepted by the editors, so the suite will be built gradually, thus giving each piece an opportunity to be featured individually as the suite itself evolves. Do keep in mind that there should be something about the piece that reflects the prompt “Film.” How it reflects it is up to the artist.  (Check out some of the other suites for examples of the concept.)
