Mobile Photography & Art – Portrait Of An Artist – ‘The Magical Self’

Share

Welcome to our new Mobile Portrait of an Artist Challenge. The theme for our brand new challenge is “The Magical Self”.  The purpose of this challenge is to dwell in the magical world within, where we can be a character, a dream, an idea or an illusion. The end of Summer gives way to the magical part of the year, not Halloween, not Christmas, but an authentic expression of the magic in each of us.

Dates for submission are from September 26th through November 10th, 2018.

Please read the following instructions:

All submissions must be posted ONLY to our specific Portrait of an Artist Flickr Challenge group – link here. 

Not to any other group from TheAppWhisperer. You will be able to add them to any other group of your choice after the challenge is over and the showcase presented.

Please use the hashtag #The MagicalSelf so we can identify images submitted to this challenge more easily.

Be creative, artistic, mysterious, charming and fun.

Mobile Photography & Art – Portrait of an Artist – Seeing Through The Eyes Of Tuba Korhan

Share

We are delighted to bring to you the seventh in our brand new series of interviews within our Portrait of an Artist column entitled “Seeing through the eyes…”. This is a section that has been created by our wonderful Portrait of an Artist Editor, Ile Mont. Mont has been inspired by the life and works of Carolyn Hall Young, as so many of us have. Young was the main contributor to our Portrait of an Artist Flickr pool and filled it with portraits of so many wonderful people, not only of herself. It is for this reason that Mont wanted to create this section, to enable us to view the artists style through their own eyes. At the end of each interview, Mont will keep Young’s tradition alive, with a portrait of herself, seen through the eyes of the artist. In this case, you will see that at the end of this interview there is a portrait of Mont, seen through the eyes of Tuba Korhan, what a gift!

Please continue to post your mobile portraiture to our dedicated Flickr group, this way, Mont will search through these artists first to interview. (foreword by Joanne Carter).

Weekend of Mobile Videography with David Scott Leibowitz our Hot & Highly Talented New Mobile Movies Editor

Share

David Scott Leibowitz is precisely the artist that he wants to be, making precisely the types of mobile movies he wants to make, delivering them precisely on his own terms, which by no coincidence pair with our needs precisely. It is for this very reason that we unequivocally welcome him warmly with open arms into TheAppWhisperer family as our brand new Mobile Movies Editor. He’s not only scorching hot with intelligence to match, he’s also multi talented with this new medium. Leibowitz wanted to mark his entrance with a Weekend Article, naturally about mobile movies and here it is! Our weekend of mobile photography/art/videography is very popular, if you would like to review others that we have published, please go here. For now, enjoy! (forward by Joanne Carter).

“Moving visual art is not the same thing as still visual art. I love both. Since my film school education in the 70’s, weighted heavily towards experimental film forms, I’ve made moving visual images as often as I make still visual images. I’ve been making both types of mobile visual images using my iPhone for as long as iPhones have been around, now 9 years.

Retired now, I’m blessed that every day has a weekend vibe, so when Joanne asked me to share my “weekend” mobile image making process, I decided to share a moving visual image process.

Recently, Meri Walker and I took a short trip to the Ft. Bragg/ Mendocino area of Northern California to spend some quality time with some old friends of hers. Our plan for our return trip was to hug the coast and the northern most groves of protected Redwoods. Ripe with tons of visual possibilities, and traveling with another iPhone artist (iPhoneArtGirl) meant the creative juices would be flowing.

I cleared40 GB of free space on my iPhone 6sPlus for this weekend’s captures. Carrying a few Sandisk Xpand flash drives takes away my worry about running out of disk space, especially when shooting a lot of video.

Apps that make the most of my experimental film and old-school video art experience most relevant include FilMicPro, KinoGlitch, RollWorld, PaintedCam, Diptic Video, Videon, Imaengine, iMotion, Glitch Art, Dermandar’s Panorama, and Time Piles. (Legacy apps like Infinite Eye and Frame Delay still work on my 5s and 4s iPhones and I keep them for that reason.)

Along the coast, I shot three clips I knew would be well used as bases for moving visual art. When I’m shooting, I’m looking for simple events that I can convert into digestible slices of moving visual meditative art. These kinds of simple events are contained by static frames containing either nature’s movement or movement caused by the presence of human beings.

I enjoy transforming these simple events into various permutations, each with its own meditative qualities”.

Mobile Movie Recommended for Turner Prize 2018 by Charlotte Prodger

Share

The Turner Prize is one of the best known prizes for the visual arts in the world and I was delighted to discover Charlotte Prodger’s mobile movie within the shortlist of artists. Prodger was born in Bournemouth, UK in 1974. She studied at Goldsmiths, London and The Glasgow School of Art.  

She has been nominated for the 2018 Turner Prize for her solo exhibition BRIDGIT/Stoneymollan Trail at Bergen Kunsthall (2017) comprising two single-channel videos. 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.

Charlotte Prodger is 44 and lives and works in Glasgow.

The Turner Prize 2018 winners will have their work exhibited with an exhibition at Tate Britain from 25 September 2018 – 6 January 2019

Mobile Photography – StreetWise Winter 2017 / 2018 Showcase

“I love the people I photograph. I mean, they’re my friends. I’ve never met most of them or I don’t know them at all, yet through my images I live with them.” Bruce Gilden

Hello Everyone!

Thank you for submitting your images to StreetWise Flickr group for our ‘Winter Showcase.’

We were touched by the soulfulness and warmth of your photos – beautiful winter scenes (whether in tropical or snowy settings) of people (and animals) looking out windows, windows as frames, windows reflecting cityscapes, people in public transportation, carrying umbrellas, lone figures in urban landscapes and photos of people connecting hand in hand, or embracing one another. Even in the often darker, bleaker times of the winter months, when taking street photos can present a challenge, so many of your images captured what it means to be human – our fragility and our connection to one another.

We are inspired by this international group and it is our honor for Ilana and I to curate so many wonderful artists from around the world, and to ultimately, share the showcases with you.

Ilana and I find it very difficult to choose such few images for the showcase from all those that were submitted and we want you to know that we appreciate each and every post!

As a reminder, we choose images for the showcase that are in keeping with our group’s intention and guidelines focusing on key aspects of street photography composition, timing, juxtaposition, catching the decisive moment rather than relying on too much aping or images that are more art oriented or painterly.

If you are a street photographer, please consider joining our growing community. To those new to our community, welcome – it’s great to have you join us!

Please continue to post your images to StreetWise Flickr group for showcase submissions:

https://www.flickr.com/groups/2750883@N25/pool/

Please note that StreetWise Facebook page is NOT for posting photographs but for sharing information/discussions, thank you!

A special thank you to Joanne.

We hope you feel inspired by this showcase and our wonderful group. Until next time, happy shooting everyone!

Many congratulations to the following artists for being featured in our showcase including:

Basak Aytek, Daniel Vondav, Donna Donato, Dina Alfasi, Paula Betlem, Carlein, Kathy Clay, Vanessa Vox, Mark Fearnley, Allyson, Susan Rennie, Armineh Hovanesian, Julia Nathanson, Isabelle Wolter, Marc Zetterblom, Ger van den Elzen,  Michel Dev1, Karen Axelrad, Michael Beresin, Laurence Bouchard, Paul Yan, Ocean Morisset, Christine Mignon, Myrna, Giulia Baita, Nick Kenrick, Luison, JH McB, Dixon Hamby, Valeria Cammareri, and Rene Valencia
