Canadian artist Thom Malone wants to do a few things with his new Kickstarter campaign.
Break the Guinesss World Record for largest mosaic
According to Malone:
"Imagine a world of peace created by a giant mosaic of Nicolas Cage face. That's the world I want to live in."
Bring people together in kinship
Malone said it's going to take a lot of cooperation, and a lot of faces, to put the mosaic together:
"The current Guinness World Record for largest photo mosaic has 176,000 photos held by Transitions Optical. I think we all can agree that Nicolas Cage deserves to hold that record. What I'd like to do is get 180,000 unique photos to make up a Nicolas Cage mosaic and then see this dream become a reality. The mosaic will be unveiled on Labour Day Weekend."
Raise $41,000 to make it happen
Malone lays out how he will use all them bucks:
"You're Going To Do WHAT With My Money? That would be your reaction if I told you that I wasn't going to spend your money on making a giant Nicolas Cage mosaic. Good news for you! That is exactly what I'll be doing. The money received will go toward printing the photos, making the rewards & obtaining permits and materials to build the mosaic. We are currently scouting out locations and will be able to reveal where it will be held once the final photo is submitted (so we can determine the exact size we need)."
Give out some classic rewards for support
You could be that joyful, delighted woman there!
Celebrate Nicolas Cage
Above everything else, this is about celebrating the man.
"Think about it: If aliens were to ever come to earth, they would need to know who our ambassador is. How best to show aliens that we want peace, but also not to mess with us than with a giant mosaic made up of a million faces to create one giant Nicolas Cage face?
Think about it this way: While our world is at war, how best can we show humanity that we desire a world wide peace than with a million faces creating one giant face of bliss? (Nicolas Cages face, obvs)
Also, here's a way to think about it: What if we were to merge everyones face in the entire world? What would be some common features? I know because I've seen it: Nicolas Cages face."
Convince you this is the best for you and for the world
