Smart Objects is pleased to announce Fone Features, an exhibition of phone-based art.
Over the past couple decades, the mobile phone has developed from having one basic use to having many, seemingly limitless, and customizable functions. Today's "smart phone" grants people many possibilities for using their device in unconventional ways-- from tracking ones sleep patterns to making painterly compositions.
For the show, artists Hana Weiss and Chadwick Gibson will be displaying various works created using different apps and functions of the iPhone. Weiss's paintings are the product of extensive experimentation, often involving three or four apps to create a single image. Gibson's work focuses on the iPhone's user interface, manipulating familiar functions into compositions, that highlight the smart phone's evolving forms of communication.
