Phone photography on display at gallery opening

14 hours ago

A new art show opening at the Aspen Chapel Gallery opens tonight. Entitled “I-Show - Photographs from Phones” features pictures taken from phones.

 

In the basement of the Aspen Chapel hang about forty photos taken solely on cell phone cameras. Subjects range from beaches to horses on television racing at the Belmont Stakes.

  Summers Moore, the curator of the show, says part of her inspiration for the exhibit was that people often think art can’t come from the device inside of their pocket.

The Roaring Fork Valley is no Silicon Valley. But, it is home to a growing innovative computer tech company. The Basalt-basediOmounts designs and distributes sturdy stands to hold smart phones and tablets. The company does most of its business online and has furnished local lodges, like the Hotel Jerome, with its products.

Turns out, iOmounts isn’t the only business of its kind in Colorado. Aspen Public Radio's Marci Krivonen reports.
