Dodgeball Glitch

I was walking around Capitol Hill the other night with a friend of mine and we happened upon this massive game of public dodgeball. There must have been thirty or more people playing. I snapped this quick glitch while we walked by. Both the original and the edit are included so you can see what I did to modify the glitch art photograph.

Glitchography

I wanted to take a moment and share some of the stuff I've been working on lately. The real challenge with any art form is inviting the audience to engage the story. This is especially true in the abstract and experimental form. Who is the main character when everything is blurred? It all comes down to shape, composition, and tempo. I've been focusing more on glitches that encode story within the image. Many times it is too abstract to definitively say what that story is, but I'd still like to invite the viewer to try. To take a moment and engage with the piece.

RatCity ArtCity Follow-Up

Last week I had my first gallery showing at the RatCity ArtCity Art Walk.  GNU Organics down in White Center hosted seven of my pieces.  It was an awesome experience.  I really like the guys who run the place.  You can tell they really care a lot.  

The art walk was just so much fun.  Really a wide range of talent.  I noticed a lot of the artists doing mixed-media and multiple formats.  I love that kind of stuff.  One artist did these incredible oil paintings in a 19th century romantic style but overlaid them with images of designer fashion logos.  Real cool effect.

Of the seven pieces I chose four were more traditional shots (albeit abstract).  The other three were glitchographs (glitch art panoramas???).  Aside - I'm still figuring out what to call this style.  Glitchography?  Glitch Art?  I guess it's interchangeable but my manager suggested I pick one term and stick with it.

People really responded well to my work.  It felt so good to be there and talk with people and be able to engage with them and find out what they like or don't like.  I even had my first sale at the art walk.  It was the photo titled "Mobile Home" (check it out in the gallery below or onFlickr).

I'm definitely going to participate in all the future art walks if I can.

RatCity ArtCity Art Walk

Great news!  Some of my photography is debuting at the RatCity ArtCity art walk down in White Center.  Gnu Organics is graciously hosting seven of my pieces.  It's a broad selection featuring some of my work with the Panasonic GH3 and some Glitchography.  It's tonight, March 14 2013 from 6pm - 9pm.

Check out the RatCity blog or the RatCity Facebook for more details.  You can also check out the Gnu Organics page here.

Kick Off

Hey world.  I'm trying out the photo blog to keep up with some of my activities around Seattle.  Currently I'm shooting with a Panasonic GH3 and primarily a 20mm f/1.7.  I have a few other speciality lenses like a pinhole, Holga, c-mount, minoltas.  I also shoot a lot with my iPhone 5.

Shooting street photography is an interesting experience.  It teaches me to pay attention to details that might otherwise have gotten looked over.  I like the pacing of it.  You don't get three hours in a studio.  Just whatever crosses your path.  A shot comes and goes in an instant.  You have to be ready.  Focused.  Zen.  At least that's what it is for me.

I'd love feedback on the site and the photography.  Check out my Flickr to see the full sets and some of my older work.
