Smart Objects is pleased to announce the first installment of Fone Features, an ongoing series of exhibitions featuring phone-based art.
Opening reception Friday May, 10th from 7-10 pm ~~~ with VIRTUAL PHONE TOURS starting May, 4th from 4-8pm.
Over the past couple decades, the mobile phone has developed from having one basic use to having many, seemingly limitless, and customizable functions. Today's "smart phone" grants people many possibilities for using their device in unconventional ways-- from tracking ones sleep patterns to making painterly compositions.
For the inaugural show, artist Hana Weiss and Chadwick Gibson will be displaying various works created using different apps and functions of the iPhone. Weiss's paintings are the product of extensive experimentation, often involving three or four apps to create a single image. Gibson's work focuses on the iPhone's user interface, manipulating familiar functions into compositions, that highlight the smart phone's evolving forms of communication.
For the week prior to the official exhibition opening, Gibson will be giving Virtual Phone Tours using his iPhone, via FaceTime or Skype app. For a tour please FaceTime the gallery at 213-840-9681 or phone Skype smartobjectsla during the hours listed below.
