THE ROOT of Photography and how it relates to painting
Watch: David Hockney’s, A Secret Knowledge, (part 1), (part 2), (part 3).

A contemporary film where a non-artist makes a camera obscura and tries to paint like Vermeer. (It’s great!) TIM’S VERMEER

And finally, thinking about drawing!

Before drones (and projects like Dronestagram) were used for photographic surveillance, people relied on balloons, kites and pigeons.  The camera in the above image was large enough to shoot large format film and required 9-17 kites to lift it.

After our conversation yesterday about the tension between analog and digital/fast and slow, I thought Emma and others would be interested in Bruno Ribeiro’s absurdist interpretation of Instagram.

And while we’re talking about Instagram, it’s worth mentioning, yet again, Dronestagram. And this:  Le Mois de la Photo a Montreal was Drone: The Automated Image. Search the site for better yet, download the program.
