Rust and Feathers In The Gutter



JAMIE'S BIRD: 01

iPhone collage

I'm thoroughly enjoying the process of creating art with my iphone: taking theraputic Autumn walks (inevitably damp) to find textures and compositions and then popping in somewhere warm and cosy for a cup of coffee, to play and experiment with what I have scavenged. The ability to photograph, edit, search the internet for ephemera, create an image and then upload it, all one little machine, pretty much anywhere I find myself, is exhilarating and liberating. The images are often simpler than the work I would create on a computer, more akin to sketchbook experiments or journal entries. This one began life literally in the gutter as it incorporates a number of photographs taken along the road, near my home. It is named after lovely Jamie at Art-e-ology who provided a beautiful piece of vintage ephemera for me to play with. Thank you Jamie!

Oh how lovely - just as well I don't have one of those or I wouldn't get any work done - I'd just want to play!

I am so honored and happy Sweet Lumilyon!!! I love this piece and I can't wait to use my iphone too!!! What an awesome idea. I love the idea of an electronic journal in your pocket:) Love, Jamie

Just when I thought you couldn't amaze me again, you create something like this! With an IPhone? How can that be? These colors are richly autumnal, yet vital and full of life. The golden glow suggests warmth and love, perfect for this time of Thanksgiving. I count your friendship as one of MY blessings, Lumi. Just wanted you to know!

Love,
Alberta

These are totally fabulous!! Is there an app that you are using to create these? I've had an iphone for a year but never made anything like this with mine.

Stunning! I wondered what iphone art was (I have a very basic mobile phone I hardly ever switch on).
