Interview MissPixels : le mobile d’un acte artistique

Interview MissPixels : le mobile d’un acte artistique | iphone-art | Scoop.it

Very interesting interview from the french site by Yann Lebecque, on an iphoneography "veteran"!

 

It's heartening to see the determination and pragmatism of Isabelle concerning the future of iPhoneography. The fact that she thinks to have to set up a mobile artist in the context of contemporary art to survive and exist beyond the current trend and fashion is essential, from my pont of view.

 

Of course, this belongs to each iPhoneographers' sensitivity, but this has to be recognized, or at last practiced, in art institutions, to remain it living and public.

Diasporamas: The art of sound slideshows (French)

Diasporamas: The art of sound slideshows (French) | iphone-art | Scoop.it
"Diasporamas, the look tuning in."

I often think that images are useless on tv, as sound can be on movies. Discover on this french website the real power of still images associated with sound.

More and more, digital journalism is using sound slideshows. What could sound old-fashioned or outdated seems here very refreshing to me, and maybe could be explored furthermore in iPhoneography.

Technically, the iPhone is the appropriate tool for illustrating these kind of reports and stories: no need for high resolution, and it's fully non obstructive (the iphone is very used for street photography and most famous iphoneographers are using their precious there)

With only your iphone and imovie in it, I think you could tell new amazing forms of stories. Just go further the simple slideshow of your work. Play with progression in photos, use sounds, music… Watching "La Jetée" by Chris Marker, I realize this former great poetic piece of work is realizable just with your iphone from now on.

Check those beautiful 'diasporamas' now…

projeqt - Storytelling using your social networks / via @Locita

Projeqt is a new tool launched by TBWA\Worldwide, to tell story using all your images, videos, texts coming from your different social network accounts: Twitter, FlickR, YouTube, Vimeo…

Projeqt is in beta right now, all we can see is mostly portfolios by designers. Projeqt may probably use images from Instagram in the future.

What is interesting I think is the connection with iPoneography, which, in my mind, is also a way to tell story by new means and technology. Even if it is photography as its base, it's always interesting to insert it in a fully digital project like this one, especially when the main purpose is essentially storytelling.

A project to follow at http://projeqt.com/
You can request a beta account at this time on the website

TALKING CAMERAS: Collective reflection around mobile photography.

As already announced, eyephoneography #2 will be launched in Madrid next April 15th at the leading EFTI photography school. In addition to the work of Carlein van der Beek, Matt Burrows, Stefano Giogli and Jordi V. Pou we will be creating TALKING CAMERAS, a collaborative exercise addressing mobile photography, contemporary creation, emerging communication models and social transformation.

This program will be structured around a series of discussions in two parts, the first one on-line (from which we will produce a collective short documentary film) and the second one off-line immediately before the exhibition opening…

The Faux-Vintage Photo: Full Essay (Parts I, II and III) » Cyborgology

The Faux-Vintage Photo: Full Essay (Parts I, II and III) » Cyborgology | iphone-art | Scoop.it

This is a quite interesting dissertation I've read this summer about the success of faux-vintage effect that we can see everywhere and especially with iphone apps and Instagram filters.

 

Beyond the Lomo heritage, and as I said it in the comments, I think Instagram can be a gold mine for many social interests. But about the vintage effect success, I like very much the beginning the part II. That is, fake vintage as a mean to relocate our boring images of boring places (not pejoratively speaking) into what seemed to be the fantastic times of 70′s, 30′s, etc, when people seemed to be free, living in excitement and revolution… In that way, as the author says it, we’re documenting ourselves our present, to make it more real, but most of all, more important, as facts. That is especially the vintage effect, referring to an image of inaccessible golden age for my generation, that makes possible its symbolic raising.


In a way, ‘vintage’ is a ‘cliché’ in a more general doxa, today. Barthes would say, this ‘cliché’ transforms our history and culture into essence and nature, to create a mythical image. I can see this ‘cliché’ – which is by nature, artificial – is masking the conventionality of our images, precisely claiming it’s ‘natural’.


This would be, kind of aesthetic ‘bourgeoisie’ of today, as bourgeoisie always looks for remaining the codes of the past. It’s locking us in this golden age, preventing us to be in the move, and putting our minds at rest, because we probably don’t manage to move forward and create our codes by ourselves. And this doxa is probably more and more cultivated through medias and the universal huge diffusion of images in advertisement, fashion, tv, etc.


This subject is really interesting, more from the photographic side for me ; I think we don’t totally digest and assume the fast development of digital photography, and don’t manage to move forward creatively with it from now. Nathan is probably right saying the vintage won’t last, until we make moves in digital creation.

POPMAT » Ramzi Rizk / EYE’EM: “Technology can twist Art in amazing ways” | iphone-art | Scoop.it
Interview of Ramzi Rizk, co-founder of EYE'EM, one of the biggest portal for sharing photos on mobile phones.

It's fine to see the growing 'sharing' specificity of mobile photography being enlighted. This is not surprising, coming from Ramzi Rizk, but surely mobile photography has to play more with this new tech ability of immediate sharing all over the world to be fulfilled.

Hundreds of Tourist Photos Weaved into One…

Hundreds of Tourist Photos Weaved into One… | iphone-art | Scoop.it
Have we all the same memory of famous sites?

Switzerland-based Corinne Vionnet is our guide to the world's most famous landmarks, monuments millions have visited before. Her art is created not by acrylic, oil, or watercolor, each piece is made by combining hundreds of tourist photos into one. After conducting an online keyword search and sifting through photo sharing sites, this Swiss/French artist carefully layers 200 to 300 photos on top of one another until she gets her desired result.

"This work is intrinsically linked to the people who took these pictures," Vionnet says. "The collaboration is obvious, but it is without their knowledge. These pictures are on the Internet, to be seen by any eventual visitors. I am just one of those visitors. It is the sheer quantity of these almost identical pictures that gave me the idea of superimposing them. I do not think I would have had the idea if I had made all these pictures of the same places myself. Anyway, the work would loose its meaning."

POU & POU fan POE

Spanish TV report on the "POU & POU fan POE" project in Lleida, Spain.Josep Maria Pou, actor, reads poems by Edgar Allan Poe (new catalan translations by Txema Martínez), while projections of iphone photos by Jordi V. Pou, one of the most interesting iphone photographers.

Jordi has always tried and managed to use every specificity of the iphone in art.
What is exciting here is the work on illustrating literacy with images and Jordi is aware of avoiding direct relations, which would be unproductive in terms of evocation.

I always keep in mind this quote by Pierre Reverdy: “The image is a pure creation of the mind. It cannot be born from a comparison but from a juxtaposition of two more or less distant realities. The more the relationship between the two juxtaposed realities is distant and true, the stronger the image will be—the greater its emotional power and poetic reality …” (used by André Breton in his Surrealism Manifesto)

Discover the diaporama projected at the intermission of the show:

Stay tuned for further information about this project and the work of Jordi V. Pou.
