Visualising Mobile Photography and Art Interview with Joyce Harkin from the United Kingdom

Share

Today, we are publishing our twenty seventh visual interview, this time with Joyce Harkin from the United Kingdom. Harkin’s art is an amalgamation of dichotomies: inside/outside, public/private, high/low – all dynamic. Her images speak eloquently to us about our own life experiences at the same depicting her own. One of Harkin’s most admirable qualities as an artist, is her hunger for inspiration and this is reflected in her varied work. When embarking on a new creation, Harkin reaches the summit, she uniquely manages to not only arrive with an aesthetically pleasing visual image but one which ensures all the elements involved are included as intended. 

I am so excited about this new Interview section within TheAppWhisperer. A picture speaks a thousand words, so says the English language idiom and as this is a website by and for visual artists, we felt this section was long overdue. We asked a series of mobile photographers and artists ten questions, in text format and we asked them to respond in their very best way, visually and in their own style of photography/art, the results are unique and incredibly exciting.

To read our previously published interviews, with Deborah McMillion, M. Cecilia Sao Thiago, Christine Sobczak, Liliana Schwitter, Armineh Hovanesian, Lorenka Campos, Donna Donato, Eliza Badoiu, Juta Jazz, Susan Rennie, Kate Zari Roberts, Lynette Sheppard, Debara Splendorio, Irene Oleksiuk, Davide Capponi, Vanessa Vox, Amanda Parker, Clint Cline, Christine Mignon, Bonobo Stone, Jerry Jobe, Joshua Sarinana, Meri Walker, Alexis Rotella, Jenny Pieters and Alon Goldsmith please go here.

Visualising Mobile Photography and Art Interview with Jenny Pieters from Johannesburg, South Africa

Share

Today, we are publishing our twenty fifth visual interview, this time with Jenny Pieters from South Africa. Pieters art strikes me as bursting with emotional depth and context. There’s a tenderness within her way of seeing, mixed with hope and despair but more so with light. With an evocation of time and place, her images imbue a deep sense interconnecting with us all, deeply. Her work is about honesty and trust with immense integrity and deserving of our unmitigated respect. (foreword by Joanne Carter)

Artistic Anarchy – Mobile Collusions is Back!

Share

Ooooh this week, the excitement has almost been too much (is that a thing?) but nevertheless, why limit ourselves? I am extremely happy to announce the return of our absolutely fabulous group Artistic Anarchy, edited and curated by Jaime Glasser and Jerry Jobe! Wow, what a cool team.

Artistic Anarchy: Mobile Collusions is a collaborator Mobile Photography and Digital Art group; each month we will randomly assign partners who exchange images and re-interpret each other’s vision through mobile Apps. Some of the best Mobile Photographers and Artists in the world are participating. We welcome your participation and look forward to seeing the incredible art that is being made. It is a wonderful experience to interpret an image in a whole different aesthetic than the artist that captured it. It is a great opportunity to get to know another artist and share in creating art with each other’s images. One of the intriguing reasons to participate is to experience having your image interpreted with an alien and surprising sensibility!

In this exciting new Column we will share experiences from participating in this group. We will have interviews with pairs of participants and get a feeling for their experiences and thoughts as they shared their images and edited each other’s art. We will have tips and comments on this collaborative process and highlight some of the images made and describe the work flow. We will also love to have your input and address any questions about the collaborative process. This is a collaborative community: Input, questions, suggestions and ideas to improve our experiences here are encouraged and appreciated!

Jaime Glasser has a cool algorithm that sorts and matches artists to one another, each month there’s a new theme and the best 10 images are featured on TheAppWhisperer at the end of the month. Originally we asked artists to post to our special Flickr group set up for this group, but we are open to discussion on this if you have any objections?

Our Facebook group for Artistic Anarchy is here.

Our column for this group on TheAppWhisperer, can be found here.

“My schedule is not 9-5, five days a week, with the weekend off.  I’m a licensed acupuncturist who often sees patients on Saturdays, so there’s no set time where I do mobile art. Especially during the winter months, I am not tooling around town in Annapolis, Maryland. But when I go grocery shopping, I’m always on the lookout for flowers to work with”.

Mobile Art – Creative Tutorial – iColorama Procedural: Spinning Vinyl

Share

We are delighted to publish this creative tutorial using the app, iColorama to create a spinning vinyl record cover by Jerry Jobe, take a look…

 

“iColorama can do amazing things, with a little patience. I posted the image below in several iColorama Facebook groups, and it got a lot of response, so I’ll show you how to create a 45 RPM single, from scratch, in this great app.

This image used the app Over for text and Leonardo for placement onto a background and adding a shadow. Those tasks can be done in iColorama, but they are easier in other, specialised apps. While I don’t add text in the video, I do show you how to mask the disc onto a new background and create a drop shadow”.

Weekend of Mobile Photography/Art with Jerry Jobe

Share

Call me nosy, call me curious, call me innovative, call me stimulating, my husband calls me se.., ok let’s not go there 😉 As a Journalist I have an incredibly enquiring mind, I want to know everything and there’s never enough hours in the day to fulfill all of my desires, that’s how most days feel to me. However, the weekends are about to become even more fulfilling because we have a new section opening up here at TheAppWhisperer.com, called ‘Weekends of Mobile Photography and Art’. I want to know what you all get up to at the weekends, in respect of our favourite subject. Kicking us off this week is the one and only Jerry Jobe! Take a look…

“Joanne Carter asked me to put together an article to outline what I do in mobile art on the weekend. I’m rather a strange choice, since I am retired, and weekends are not much different from weekdays. When I was writing weekly tutorials, I would gather my screenshots or rehearse a video prior to putting the article together on Monday. Since I no longer do that, my schedule is not limited to weekend/weekday work.

So, in order to get into the spirit of a weekend, I’m writing about what artwork helps me relax. For me, it’s starting with a blank canvas and creating abstracts. Playing with shape, color and texture appeals to me, and learning to use my apps in new and surprising ways is always a blast.
