Last Friday the 7th Annual National Self-Portrait Exhibition opened at the 33 Contemporary Gallery located in the Zhou B. Art Center. Entirely devoted to different aspects of self-awareness, the show features works ranging from representational to conceptual explorations of self-awareness in a variety of media.

Within the show was Harrington Photography college instructor Tim Arroyo’s awesome work below! In addition to being selected for the show along with over 100 other artists, his photo was chosen as the poster image for the show, and was used in the print and video marketing for the event.

One of the unique features of this show is the ability for attendees to use their cell phones to call a number specific to a piece to learn more about the work. Here is the description that was used for Tim’s work:

“This work titled ‘The Dream Voyager’ by Tim Arroyo is part of a series of works titled ‘Stage 5’ named for the sleep stage where dreams occurs. The works in the series are surrealistic in nature, and are visual interpretations of imagery extracted from Tim’s dream journals.

‘The Dream Voyager’ is a digital composition of photographs, who serves as a metaphor for Tim’s subconscious mind. In the photo the body decomposes and recomposes as it travels in and out of dreams through the oblong-shaped portal. The balloon head serves as both a navigator and narrator, who leads the dreamer on a journey through the psyche providing clues to the interpretation of the dreams.

This photograph was printed on a 24”x30” hand-coated sheet of Arches printmaking paper, and printed with pigment-based archival inks by the artist.”

At the Harrington College of Design, we are always looking to push the creativity to the next level, and I came across one more awesome example from a summer digital photography class called Modern Alternative Photographic Practices!

In the digital photography class, students are taught to disassemble (destroy, dissect, otherwise part-out and reuse) older cameras and lenses. They then use these pieces to design and construct their own new photographic tools that create unique and one-off imagery: imagery that offers possibilities for commercial and fine art applications.

On their modern photography on the blog, aptly described as “the summer section of the amazing build-your-own-camera-and-lens-blow-stuff-up-paint-with-light-did-i-mention breaking-cameras-just-to-build-new-ones…class,” students are documenting their cutting edge photography work.

An example is Harrington Digital Photography student PClarke’s Fish Eye Lens cam (shown above) that took the awesome photo below!

I’ll share some more of the great modern photography student work tomorrow!
