L.A. Mobile Arts Festival 2012

Living in California definitely has its advantages.  One that I was able to enjoy this weekend was the L.A. Mobile Arts Festival held at the Santa Monica Art Studios.  I came away totally inspired and humbled by the talent of the amazing iPhoneographers whose work was selected for this event.
Below are some photos I took of the beautiful images and sculptures on display.  I have noted the names of the photographers in some instances – I apologize for not getting each name, however I was so gobsmacked by what I was viewing that I forget to take note!

A traveling installation consisting of 40 iPads mounted on a metal sculpture recovered from Florida’s Hurricane Opal in 1995.  Each iPad contains a rotating slideshow of 13 works of an individual artist.  (My husband had to ask if it was for sale and the answer was yes…for $180,000)

Above – Fingerpainting in Motion: The iPad Car!  This iPad created painting by Italian-based mobile artist Matthew Watkins was printed on film and then applied to a CODA 2012 automobile with a heat gun. 
I’m hopeful that this is just the first of many Mobile Arts Festivals to come!  The event this year run through August 25th.
