It's any given day. Let's say, it's Monday.
You're sleeping, the clock yells that you should get up. You drag yourself to the shower, you have something your mother wouldn't call a breakfast. Get dressed, get dressed as a business man, as a student, as a regular office worker. Hit the door.
You're down there now. Following the usual path. Some time to move as a robot, read like a robot, hear music as a robot.
And then, you see something. Something different, something that make you smile. Something that wakes you up.
Because you weren't really awake before.
It could be a painting in a wall. A sunbeam. An old man smiling at 7am at a cold bus stop. He always smiles, you see him everyday. But you never shared it with anybody.
A hidden detail, a non written story. That's Opticmism.
Opticmism is our idea to share positive points of view in these harsh times. It's really simple. Just take a picture of that little thing that makes you smile every day. Then, share it at our project, and once your submission is uploaded, tweet it to the world with the hashtag #Opticmism.
Hint: do you want to make your pictures as arty as possible? Download then some customized filters application to enhance your pictures. We recommend a really nice one, the Corso12 App for iPhone: it's nice, neat and free!
Show to the world what makes you tick. What makes you smile. What you think will make everybody smile. What cheers you up. What changed a bad day into a nice one.
Let's say, it's Monday, November 28th. Let's say, you start sharing positive things today.
