Touch.My.Prints. ISSUE02

TMP has received amazing submissions for the second issue, Image vs. Data. I have also been sent emails asking for more time to complete some projects with the provided image. In response, I am extending the deadline to June 10th. I am so excited to share this issue with everyone. I hope a few more people can parcipate and I can not wait to begin work on TMP ISSUE02.

IMAGE vs DATA

Photography has long been concerned with data retention within the act of the photograph. Photographers are taught to expose, develop, and digitally capture in a method to maintain the most information possible. Every step in a photographer’s workflow is a careful dance to keep data. It doesn’t matter if we are talking film or digital, every photographic process is essentially the mastery of data retention. The reasoning is, having the most information available allows for the most creative interpretations of the information.

Touch.My.Prints wants to explore this concept of the photography as data as opposed to image. TMP will provide an image for every participant to take. Each participant will use the image as data and create a new piece of work. The new work can be video, sculpture, sound, video, even a drastic reinterpretation of the image, etc. A selection of the new works and their creators will be featured in Touch.My.Prints. ISSUE02.

The deadline is June 01, 2013.

INSTRUCTIONS

Save the image. Use the data the image file provides to create a new piece of work. The new work can take any form, any medium, any function, in fact, preferably so. Then send the new work to TouchMyPrints @ gmail .com following the guidelines below.
