New Video interview on CLITERACY with Amon Focus of Life is Digital Media at SCOPE. I love it when friends on tumblr become friends in the non-virtual art world. It’s hard to put into words why this is so gratifying. I guess it is because tumblr is a free open space where the art wold is perhaps the opposite. When these spheres collide it reaffirms my belief that so much possible.

“So, why do we make people jump through all these hoops? Requiring registration sets a high bar, but it gives all participants a way to identify themselves within the scope of the project. In early phases, profiles allow participants to recognize each other in the studio, but in later stages of the project (nominations, curator visits) it becomes about continuing the dialogue online in a way that retains the feel of those open doors. The electronic “check-in” at studios is another step in the process, but it goes a long way to ensure that works of art are seen in person—an artist’s online profile is just a teaser to help visitors get interested in the work and then later remember what they saw, but we don’t want people judging work online where works of art are difficult to represent.”

I love my work. Today I’m shooting youth success stories such as Page who at 11 rescued a drowning 13 year old from the bottom of the pool. None of the adults could swim that deep and the life guards were in shock.
