L.A. Mobile Arts Festival
CELEBRATING MOBILE CREATIVITY
There’s more to cell-phone photography than Instagram, according to Daria Polichetti. And to prove it the L.A. Mobile Arts Festival opens this Saturday (18 August) in Santa Monica, California. The festival is showcasing the creativity of over 100 mobile artists whose work includes not just photographs, but digital paintings and sculpture.
Co-founded by Daria Polichetti and Nathaniel Park of iPhoneArt.com, the festival sets out to show just how creative art made using mobile technologies can really be. “This is a huge movement” Polichetti told the Los Angeles Times recently, “We just wanted to bring that here to LA.”
With more than 600 works on show, the festival is believed to be the largest such event yet staged. The artists involved hail from across the USA and over 30 other countries around the world. While all the technology used to create these works is mobile, it is not limited to phones but includes other devices such as the iPad.
