Post-it


Any good idea to improve Lisbon? Write it on a post-it.
55.000 post-its are now covering the façade of the MUDE (Museum of Design and Fashion).
There's a €2,5 million fund to make the best idea(s) come true.

Oh, this could have been an entrant in one of last year's art challanges for our art group. Post-It notes was the challenge. This one is very good!

@Virginia: The people of the museum is in charge of the panel, I bet they are used to set up more difficult stuff. :-)))

That is brilliant!

Post-it notes were one of the best inventions of the 20th century, in my humble opinion. (They seem to paper my world.) What a brilliant idea to use them to convey ideas and create art!

NixBlog said...

Amazing! It's a wonder they stay stuck there and not blown off by the wind.

La Principessa Errante said...

Whoa - That is so cool! What a fabulous project.

Halcyon said...

Great idea!

Jack said...

That is SUCH a creative idea, JM. Love it!

Bob Crowe said...

But they have been turned into a design for the facade of the building, unreadable by the public. It makes any semblance of participation by the people seem like a hoax.

Randy said...

Now that's creative.

La Mode Operandi said...

Cool act on sense of community...and really cool to look at ha!

Gunn said...

SMART!
And it looks nice too.

I wish they could have done the same here!!

Joan Elizabeth said...

There is some pretty cool ideation software around these days but that has none of the visual appeal of this project.

Nathalie said...

Fantastic ! I love it when you report on such excellent initiatives.

ladyfi said...

Muito interessante. Muito criativo. Parabéns Lisboa. Parabéns Portugal.

Dina said...

A great idea and beautiful wall.
And there is funding behind it even!

Rob and Mandy said...

I didn't know the facade was changing like this. Got some very different photos of the place. Who put the 55.000 post-its on the wall???

Francisca said...

Very cool. When are the winning ideas announced?
