The idea is to occupy Facebook with art, breaking the monotony of photos of lunch, selfies, and sports. Whoever likes this post will receive an artist and has to publish a piece by that artist with this text.

La idea es ocupar Facebook con arte, rompiendo la monotonía de las fotos de almuerzo, selfies y deportes. Quien le gusta este post va a recibir un artista y tiene que publicar una obra de ese artista con este texto.

In 1966, Brand campaigned to have NASA release the then-rumored satellite image of the entire Earth as seen from space. He distributed buttons for 25 cents each[5] asking, “Why haven’t we seen a photograph of the whole Earth yet?”[6] He thought the image of our planet might be a powerful symbol. In 1967 a satellite took the photo. It adorned the first (Fall 1968) edition of the Whole Earth Catalog.[7] Later in 1968, a NASA astronaut took an Earth photo[6] from Moon orbit, which became the Catalog’s next front image in spring 1969. In 1970 Earth Day began to be celebrated.[5] During a 2003 interview, Brand explained that the image “gave the sense that Earth’s an island, surrounded by a lot of inhospitable space. And it’s so graphic, this little blue, white, green and brown jewel-like icon amongst a quite featureless black vacuum.” During this campaign Brand met Richard Buckminster Fuller, who offered to help him in his projects.


Earth from space, by William Anders, Apollo 8, 1968

Whole Earth Catalog # 1

Brand’s meeting with Richard Buckminster Fuller, led to the classic text: Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth


Anyway, soon Ill attempt a map of sorts of all the journeys of this art game..
