The Frame is Yours” offers an opportunity to acquire an original slide together with all its authorial rights. Placed into one of the 15 boxes, together with the project’s catalogue, the slide frame will belong to its holder, who will be able to do what she or he wants with it – sell, make copies, cut, or, even, burn it. In the context of proliferating digital imagery, the project raises questions about the authorship and materiality of photographic pictures.

“The Frame is Yours” is an experimental publication project by photographer Paul Paper, object artist Tim Kliukoit and graphic designer Laura Grigaliūnaitė.

Sample photographs gathered during From Archive to Desire workshop, which took place in Klaipeda and Nida, Lithuania, 18-24 March.

With three groups (photography, graphic design and audio) we have worked 5 days sampling the city of Klaipeda. Moods, half-told stories and subjects usually left behind the frame (metaphorically and virtually) were the targets of my group’s photographic archive-building. More than 600 photographs, forming 12 topics, were selected out of more than 3 500.

Participants: Milda Bacytė, Vaida Bagočiūtė, Julija Bočkutė, Ignė Butvidaitė, Rita Čiornaitė, Karolina Kniukštaitė, Martynas Lapas, Vestina Petrauskaitė, Kristina Podorozhnaya, Marius Skrupskis, Indrė Staniutė, Ugnė Tubutytė, and others.

Organized by Luca Diffuse and Klaipeda Faculty of the Vilnius Art Academy. With the participation of Nicola Di Croce, Emilio Macchia, Paul Paper, Luca Molinari, Gonzalo Herrero Delicado, Fredy Massad and Valentina Ciuffi (”Abitare”).

Call for submissions – LIGHT

Posted: July 22nd, 2012 | Author: jessica williams | Filed under: Miscellaneous | No Comments »

56_bwlight

We are seeking submissions for a new project.

We are both in the habit of taking pictures of the phenomenon of light in ordinary circumstances – from sun through a blind or elongated through a window, etc. We realized you might be too. We are curious to see your photographs and/or new photographs you would like to create with LIGHT in mind.

What do incidental shifts of light and shadow communicate?

Once selected, and with your permission, we would like to further explore the transformation of these images through the Risograph, Xerox, newsprint, etc. We are hoping to distill the collected geometries and abstractions at play in light and shadow through these machines.

We are not sure what format the project will take just yet, but hope to make a poster or book from the collected images in time for Printed Matter’s NY ART BOOK FAIR.

Please send 1-5 high res images to mgsubmissions@gmail.com by August 15th, 2012. Include any information you have regarding location and time of day your photographs were taken. Please label the photo with your last name and LIGHT: ex: schatz_light.jpeg

Some influences: Optical phenomenon, Tarkovsky, James Turrell’s white pyramids, properties of light, film noir, Uta Barth’s Sundial series, geometry, shadows, Jessica’s Light Hunting, you.

Many thanks,

Jessica Williams and Denise Schatz
