Mobile Photography / Art – Saturday Poetry ‘Weep Holes’ by Andrea Cohen with Christine Mignon

Share

This weeks Saturday Poetry, matched with mobile photography/art is entitled ‘Weep Holes’ by Andrea Cohen. Cohen received an MFA from the University of Iowa. She is the author of the poetry collections Unfathoming (Four Way Books, 2017); Furs Not Mine (Four Way Books, 2015), winner of the 2016 Golden Crown Award for Poetry; Kentucky Derby (Salmon Poetry, 2011); Long Division (Salmon Poetry, 2009); and The Cartographer’s Vacation (Owl Creek Press, 1999).

About her poetry, Tony Hoagland writes, “Cohen’s craft is meticulous, as with her flashlight she prowls and probes, reporting on the emotional transactions of our lives that can only partially be seen. The poetic results are fiercely distinctive and moving.”

Cohen directs the Writers House at Merrimack College and the Blacksmith House Poetry Series in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

I have matched mobile art work untitled by @christinemignon – Christine Mignon with this poem. You can view and follow her on Instagram here.

Mobile Photography – Portrait of an Artist – Twenty Eighth Video Showcase

Share

We are delighted to present our 28th Portrait of an Artist Video Showcase. Ile Mont our highly talented Editor for our Portrait of an Artist Column has curated the another astonishing showcase. Each image is related to the previous and the ensuing, the personal associations that underpin their selection remain mysterious.

Mobile Movies – Turner Prize Won by Charlotte Prodger with her iPhone

Share

In April this year we published news that Charlotte Prodger’s iPhone film had been added to the shortlist for the Turner Prize. Today, we are delighted to note that it has now gone on to win the Turner Prize and with it £25,000.

Prodger was born in Bournemouth, UK in 1974. She studied at Goldsmiths, London and The Glasgow School of Art.

Moving image has been at the core of Prodger’s work for two decades. Its ever-evolving formats are inextricably bound to the autobiographical content of her work. She has mined the material properties of numerous moving image formats, not just because they inherently get replaced over time, but because she is fascinated by their formal parameters and socio-political histories; the sticky relationship between form and content. Prodger’s recent videos set up complex tensions between the body, landscape, identity and time.

BRIDGIT is titled after the eponymous Neolithic deity whose name has had multiple iterations across different geographical locations and points in history. BRIDGIT was shot entirely on Prodger’s iPhone, which she approaches as a prosthesis or extension of the nervous system, intimately connected to time, social interaction and work. Body and device become extensions of each other, and the work becomes a unified meditation on shifting subjectivity.

Stoneymollan Trail is named after an ancient coffin road on the west coast of Scotland. A non-linear miscellany of visual material from her personal archive (shot between 1999 and 2015), it traces a history of recent video formats as well as the artist’s personal history. Much of Prodger’s work looks at what happens to speech and the self for which it is a conduit – as it metamorphoses via time, space and technological systems. For voiceovers she frequently asks friends to read out her own diaristic content, while she inhabits other subjectivities by re-speaking the words of people living and dead: friends, anonymous YouTube users and historical figures of influence. The material perpetually shifts around, but is locally grounded in its means of production – based in queerness, communality, technology, language and loss.

Mobile Photography / Art Tutorial – Manipulating Sort in iColorama with Jerry Jobe

Share

We are so delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our reading and viewing pleasure.  Read Jobe’s thoughts about manipulating Sort in the hugely popular iOS app, iColorama. Take it away Jerry…..

(foreword by Joanne Carter)

“It’s been a while since I’ve covered any new features in iColorama, the premier mobile art app. The feature I will cover today, Form>Sort, was added a few years ago, and has been used repeatedly in brilliant works by many mobile artists. There aren’t a lot of modifications to the effect that can be accomplished in the Sort command itself, but I’ve discovered that you can make subtler, beautiful effects by modifying the image before applying sort, and I’d like to show you how to do that”.

My first image here used Sort on the background, and I added the flower, dog, and painted elements after.
