Project 2501 is an art project created by Ash Thorp and Tim Tadder paying homage to the opening title sequence of the 1995 Ghost in the Shell film. Though it was initially created as a photo tribute by Thorp and Tadder, the project expanded to include more than 20 artists. A full list of credits and acknowledgements is available via the project’s website.
A respectful homage to Shirow Masamune’s manga and Mamoru Oshii’s seminal film “Ghost in the Shell”, this is a modernized direction that still tries to stays true to the original creator’s vision. What started as a photo tribute directed by Ash Thorp and Tim Tadder (photography), soon became a worldwide collaboration of more than 20 artists from around the world, with each and everyone coming together to help breath life into the project, resulting in the artistic interpretation you see below.
