[DIGITALLY-INSPIRED] According to David Szauder, there is a parallel between the way human and digital memory work. His series "Failed Memories" illustrates this idea. The details we associate with a picture slowly vanish over time to be replaced by self-generated memories.
[CONCEPT] Instagram ventures IRL in this street art series created by Bruno Ribeiro. Carboard signs that look like an Instagram post, complete with the white frame, the user name, location and tags, were placed in several locations across London and Manchester.
[DIGITALLY-INSPIRED] Using digital photography, collage, 3D rendering and primitive 3D scanning technology, Mark Dorf made this series of photographs where natural landscapes and digital images coexist to create a striking contrast.
[WEIRD APP] This iPhone app lets you modify a picture of your choice by applying one of the 12 presets at your disposal. Modify the parameters, such as the mess or pixel density and you will get a unique piece of pixel art.
[CONCEPT] Specialized in capturing light, Patrick Rochon took on a new challenge by photographing three wakeboarders, Mike Dowdy, Adam Errington, and Dallas Friday, at night. The LED lights strapped to the boards shine in the dark and become solid rays of light when shot by Patrick Rochon.
[WEIRD APP] This new iOS app is "an exploration between photography and nostalgia." The pictures you snap with ThrowBack cannot be seen right away. You set the time of the "big reveal" yourself, from one month to five years.
[CONCEPT] This new photo editing interface lets you use voice control to perform modifications on your pictures. Conceived for the increasingly popular mobile devices, PixelTone combines speech and direct manipulation for a more precise execution.
[GAME-INSPIRED] Models shot from above become the characters of a 2D video game set in the streets of Hong Kong. The colorful road markings of the Chinese city perfectly recreate IRL the levels of a game.
[DIGITALLY-INSPIRED] Celestial bodies come out from the darkness of space. Their different colors and patterns seem to express the diversity of planets found in the universe. This is what you want to see, but Christopher Jonassen's photographs are way more down to earth.
