Ongoing Call for participation.
Since the fifteenth century and the advent of the mirror artists have modeled for themselves in their own works of art. Whatever the reason, nearly every artist, in every medium from painters to sculptors have attempted this exploration of self.
How does the artistic self portrait look today in the smartphone era?
You are hearby invited to make a creative self portrait using a mirror and a camera phone.
The only criteria is that you are an artist. The medium you work in doesn’t matter
It has to be a self portrait taken by you in front of a mirroring surface and the cameraphone has to be visible. Other than that it’s open to your creativity. It doesn’t have to be an iPhone. Any brand can be used as long as it’s a phone.
No ordinary cameras allowed.
The domain is a take on the various similar sites like guyswithiphones girlswithiphones, babeswithiphones, uncutgirlswithiphones, hairycatswithiphones and so on.
Take your self portrait and email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Include your name and a link to your artist website.
There will be no selection. Every picture that meets the requirement will be posted.
Contact me if you have any questions.
This is a project from Anders Weberg and produced by the Stian gallery of con-temporary art.
This pictures will not be sold or distributed in any way. This is Your picture and always will.
Would there in the future be anyone interested in doing a exhibition of this collection every artist will for sure be asked before anything happens and you are free to then decide if you would like to participate in that or not.
I’m doing this out of pure curiosity and I’m really looking forward to see a lot of creative self portraits.
You will regret that cell-phone self-portrait in the bathroom mirror one day.
