Classic Icon and Compass designs celebrating the Mondo Instante project. The images used for this design are all public domain, antique images including: the bicycle tire from the British Museum's public domain collection that was released and is from "Through a Continent on Wheels" published in 1899 London, the timepiece also from the British Museum collection and is from "Gibraltar y su Campo" published in 1899, the compass from the Theory of Seasons by A and C Black, a Chart of the Solar System from 1873, and the two hemispheres of the earth from a 1612 map by Hessel Gernitsz, each chosen to represent a little of what the Mondo Instante project is about...the globe, obvious, as is the timepiece, the compass for all the directions from which we come from on this earth, and the bicycle tire to signify movement and action during the Mondo moment!
Mondo Instante, or MI, is the global photography experiment originally developed by three women on three different continents, North America (Shannon in the Cleveland, Ohio area of the United States), South America (Mecha in Puerto Madrin, Argentina), and Europe (Silvia in Rimini, Italy). Thanks to the wonders of technology and social media the three of us first conceptualized and then hashed out the idea in October of 2010.
The project name itself, Mondo Instante, is a blend of Italian "Mondo" (World) and Spanish "Instante" (Instant), meaning "the world in an instant", to honor the native languages of Silvia and Mecha.
Project events occur once every two to three months on a predetermined day at a specific time, and lasts only an instant (Mondo Instante!). At this designated singular moment, all participants from points around the world are ready with camera in hand to take a photograph of their immediate environment, whether it be a self portrait, of someone or some object close by, or a panoramic shot of their location. The photos are then submitted, and then finally posted together side by side in an online gallery exhibition - little windows into the lives of people all over the world at the same moment in time.
