Studio b. and its signature work, Light Impressions has been invited to the LA Mobile Arts Festival 2012. Light Impressions is a mind-bending, first-of-its-kind art installation of 40 iPhoneographers and 520 images from 10 countries around the globe. Thousands of dollars worth of iPads, mounted on a rooftop rescued from a Florida hurricane, sporting a uniquely personal collection of digital imagery.
“We are so proud to have Studio b. on board,” said Daria Polichetti, co-founder of iPhoneArt.comand LA MAF. “Studio b. is a pioneer in this renegade art medium, and is remarkably in tune with iPhoneArt’s philosophy of exploring, sharing and mentoring the best and latest in the mobile arts.”
LA-MAF will feature two Studio b. creations: Light Impressions, a multinational installation that has toured internationally, and The Mobile Art Chandelier, Studio b.’s creative camera phone chandelier.
Based in Florida, Studio b. personifies the early days of the mobile art movement. Founder and curator Colleen Duffley comes from a background in commercial photography and advertising. But she was an early convert to mobile photography.
“Four years ago, our very first creative showcase at Studio b. was a global camera-phone event. We elevated iPhoneography to the art form level it deserves with the Light Impressions installation and demonstrated the extent to which Studio b. is dedicated to growing and changing with technology. It is extremely flattering to be a featured installation at the L.A. Mobile Arts Festival, an event that recognizes the evolution of the relationship between art and technology.”
LA-MAF will present 8 days of mobile artistry at the Santa Monica Art Studios, an historic airplane hangar turned cutting-edge arts community, located close to Silicone Beach, a new mecca for mobile technology development. The exhibition will bring together art and technology in new and innovative ways, a culmination of the first few years of the growing field of mobile art.
