How To Submit A Cone To The Museum:
- "All I've got is my cone..."
If you don't have a lot of fancy equipment and software, don't worry. Grab your
camera (or borrow a friends) and set your cone up in a well-lit area, preferably
against a white background. Take a picture of all six sides and anything else of
interest (signature, date, number, glued goody on top, etc). Get the film
developed and email me (firstname.lastname@example.org)
for where to send the prints.
I'll scan in the snapshots and take it from there. If you'd like the pictures
returned, just enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Also include a sheet
of paper specifying your name, the venue, city and date of the Robyn show where
you purchased the cone. Number the pictures on the back so I know what order
they go in.
- "Wait, I do have a video camera..."
Videotape your cone from all sides, keeping the camera still on each image for
at least a ten (10) seconds. Email me
my snailmail address and send me the tape. I'll take it from there. I can
work with either VHS or 8mm video. If you'd like the tape returned, enclose
$1 to help cover return postage. Include a sheet of paper specifying your name,
address, and the venue, city and date of the Robyn show where you purchased the
- "I've got access to a scanner..."
Great! Take some snapshots of your cone and scan them in. Save the scans in
.gif non-interlaced format onto a disk. You can either snailmail me the disk
(Email me at email@example.com for my address)
or try and
send me the .gifs as email attachments (one attachment per email, please).
I'll take it from there. Or, better
yet, search the Web for animated .gif shareware programs (GIF Constuction Set
is a good one for Windows), make the animated .gif yourself, and get that to
me somehow (see below).
- "Hang on...I can do everything myself...just tell me how to get it
in the Museum!"
Well, at the moment, I have no place for you to anonymously FTP the file or
files. If the animated .gif is not too large (~50K or so), you can try
emailing it to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) as an
you have a personal Web Page, just post it there and email me the URL. I'll
stop by your page and copy it down.
