As the digital world grows to encompass all aspects of our life, we see the gadgets of our day-to-day existence evolving into expressive art mediums. The advent of cell phones with built-in cameras has sprung a revolution in photography and digital filmmaking; its accessibility is eliminating the boundaries between amateur and professional. Examining the line where art and technology intersect, Cell-Outs and Phonies, explores this new way of creating and experiencing digital art.
Short films will be shown on LCDs and projected while other images are printed, up-linked or never removed from the actual phone.
The opening reception will feature music assembled entirely with ring tones by German experimental group "Super Smart" and continuous screenings of cell phone videos.
Curated by Laura Merians.
Featuring local and international artists: David Zulaica, Krista Connerly, Mark Beck Batya, Gina Clyne, Scott Myers, Al B. Sure, Michael Szpakowski, Brett Simon.
