THISPLACEMENT was a unique crowdsourced art project conceived by artists Baschz and Selfcontrolfreak (Olivier Otten), who used objects donated by people to prepare their work. For the Image Festival Rotterdam 2010, the artists simply set up a table in a green space and invited people to donate any object which was then used them as a permanent part of their new work presented in CBK Rotterdam. At the end, people who donated received a special signed frame with their object in it.

The below video shows how it all went:
