On My Radar- Eight Apps for a Desert Island with WiFi by M. Cecilia São Thiago

Share

I am a woman who loves cautiously but willingly, when my soul is touched. M. Cecilia São Thiago is an artist who not only touches my soul, she holds it. The radiance of her passionate being shines through in her art. In this interview, like so many, that I ask of her, she takes my request and then metaphorically seduces it with her own narrative, the sign of an excellent and inspiring artist. São Thiago’s art is a testament to the collective consciousness of a life well lived, creating portraiture as an atmospheric landscape, one that abolishes the distance between all who view it. Danish philosopher, Søren Kierkegaard wrote “It is quite true what philosophy says, that life must be understood backward. But then one forgets the other principle, that it must be lived forward”. Here’s the thing, with São Thiago, we know there’s an adult in the room, one that composites memories, fantasies, introspection and awareness into a unique enchantment of the age in which we lived and live. (foreword by Joanne Carter).

We have another brand new section here at TheAppWhisperer called ‘On My Radar’ and this time we are asking a selection of highly talented mobile photographers and artists, which apps they would take with them on a unique desert island, that has wifi! We want to know exactly what apps are really on their radar and why. As well as eight apps, we have also allowed each artist to select a book and a luxury object on this luxury journey. Kicking us off with our seventh issue of this section, is non other than the highly talented M. Cecilia São Thiago from Brazil.

Starting from the principle that the Island has WIFI, I give myself the right to think that I am not in danger and I do not have to worry about taking my Swiss Army Knives or survival books in the tropical forest or the desert I have here… So I place myself in the perspective of who is going to be well treated and what will be demanded of me will be my testimony as a usufruct of the island, as a photographer ‘Flaneuse’ and maybe as a thinker and idealiser of the project itself, where I am above all to be confronted with the company of myself.

Above all I want to be confrontational with my own company, and how could it not be, I start again talking about the self-portrait and the representation he has in photography and the arts.

I love doing Face destruction with lots of apps for iPad, and only one self-portrait can be used for that because I do not think anyone else would like to see his face destroyed as I do with mine… ;P  !!”

“Everything evolves, there are no eternal realities: just as there are no absolute truths.”

(Nietzsche, 1878)

As in a Rorschach test, in choosing the images for this presentation, I had the distinct impression of showing more than the photographs I so much admire, much of my essence and the content that inhabits me.

In irrational art there is a valuation in relation to the unconscious that is portrayed through the dream, where the ideas that arise to the mind do not have an order or organisation, being visible in the surrealist works the variety of present elements and a certain confusion that bind the observer to the photograph.

Man-Ray makes the distinction in his photographic work between two contradictory worlds, between the real and the inexplicable. He affirmed that the resolution of the future would be found through two states, reality and dream”

Mobile Photography – TrueView Interview – ‘Why I create Self Portraiture’ with Cecilia São Thiago from Brazil

Share

Our TrueView Interview section is an area where we ask one singular question, to mobile photographers and artists and it is captured to video. This time, we asked highly accomplished Mobile Photographer and Artist, Cecilia São Thiago from Brazil to consider and answer ‘why I create self portraiture with my smartphone’. It is an interesting question to ponder, there are over 1.8 billion photos shared around the internet each day, many of these are selfies. The difference, we feel in our questioning is that we are asking artists. Therefore, do artists take self portraits because it gives them the opportunity to view themselves from the outside? That a considerable amount of other thoughts will, we hope, be uncovered in our new series of TrueView Interviews, enjoy!

Many artists are working on their videos right now and each video is as unique and individual as each artist. We are fully conscious and respectful that you are all capturing a part of yourself and sharing it with us and we love it.

Thank you for being a reader and viewer of our wonderful site. If you would like to view our previous TrueView Interviews, please go here.

“I see Joanne Carter as the great artist “Tristan Tzara” of today, writing “our dadaist manifesto” and creating a new impact on the arts. Joanne, you truly are a pioneer in the Art & Mobile Photography movement !!

And answering your question;  I’ve always been crazy about lists and organising my searches on topics.

As soon as I discovered the name iPhoneography, I started to search the internet for everything on this subject, from artists, to tutorials and applications, and soon I came across “TheAppWhisperer” where I found everything I needed.

“TheAppWhisperer” is my number 1 and favorite website for Mobile Photography, it’s a really good and essential resource for inspiration, artist discovery and app research.

When I started to edit my photos made with an iPhone and published them on Instagram, I discovered a series of profiles where was common a daily editing activity, but I couldn’t  always knew which application was used, and many Photographers don’t named the apps they’ve used for the specific photos.

It was because of TheAppWhisperer after a lot of queries, research, and studying, that I was able to get to the level I am today, where I almost know which application is used for this or that effect.

TheAppWhisperer is a place for highlighting the iPhoneographer, it offers great interviews with Photographers from all over the world. TheAppWhisperer is the gallery where I want to be, with the most beautiful and ground-breaking iPhone art on the web and home to an ever-increasing number of visionary artists in the exploration and development of this vibrant new medium. Here we may find app reviews, exhibition news and many more.

In The AppWhisperer community, I also had the opportunity to meet other great artists and mobile photographers, and not only exchange experiences regarding imaging, but also have a true friend  relationship with people from distant countries, where support is the commonplace.

So, here is the bookmark-worthy resources that are all about mobile photography.

Take Your Smartphone Photography to the Next Level and visit the wonderful work from Joanne Carter.

To illustrate my answer I share with you some videos I have been working on in the last month.

These are very different images from what I usually share here on this site. What influenced me most to do these videos is to attend a postgraduate course and live in a country where tradition and good manners seem to be shaken by the corruption and lack of ethics and descent I saw in my youth”.
