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  !!”

Mobile Photography & Art – Portrait of an Artist – Seeing Through The Eyes Of Juta Jazz

Share

We are delighted to bring to you the fifth 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 Juta Jazz, what a gift!

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

APPquestion: If you could use only one app, which would you choose?

Share

We are delighted to publish this wonderful article by our APPart Editor Bobbi McMurry, it relates to a question she raised within our Facebook Group for this column. We are sure you will find this incredibly informative.  Over to you Bobbi (foreword by Joanne Carter).

“A few weeks ago we had a lively discussion (within our specific Facebook group for this Column – see here), about the one art app we couldn’t live without. There were 155 posts in this talk that not only named specific apps, but also touched on the aspects we like about our go-to apps.

I have created a summary highlighting the items mentioned in our APPart conversation. Please note, this summary in no way attempts to cover the vast array of features contained in these very robust apps”.

We’re delighted to publish this fascinating tutorial by our new Columnist to our APPart Column Bobbi McMurry.  In this demonstration, Bobbi explains how to create a fabulous piece of art using only one app to one photograph, don’t miss this. Over to you Bobbi (foreword by Joanne Carter).

“This piece was for a Facebook challenge in which you create an image using only one photo and one app. This was a good exercise for me as I usually use a multitude of images and at least three apps. I also thought this would be a good image to do a tutorial with, due to its simplicity”.

Today, we are bringing you news of a new app from the developers of ArtStudio and Videon called MultiCam.

This app utilises the ‘manual focus/exposure’ features of iOS8, and instead of taking single photo takes a series of photos and saves them in an internal gallery. The user can then open the photo and change focus/exposure at anytime in the future by just moving sliders.

MultiCam retails for $1.99/£1.49 but if you would like to be in with a chance to win a promo code for MultiCam, all we ask is for you to reply to this post telling us what you love most about theappwhisperer.com (we know how hard it is to narrow it down to one thing and also retweet or FB this post). That’s it, we’ll enter your details into our magic hat and if you’re a winner, a code will soon be sitting in your inbox.

MultiCam retails for $1.99/£1.49 and if you prefer, you can download it here.
