Yippy!

Hello, I am Daniel Martinez. There is not much to say about me. I am a lover of films, music, and cheese. I love to laugh, so talk to me and make me laugh.

C-print, 123.2 × 120.7 cm.

Today I got to here, see, meet, and have a dinner conversation with this artist Penelope Umbrico. Her work is so intricate, beautiful, and so smart. I am so happy and to have met her and how so humanistic she was. Today was a good day.

Some nice GIFs made from our Jacolby Satterwhite New York Close Up film. We made a few GIFs of our own back when we premiered the film in August 2013.

Jacolby Satterwhite Dances with His Self

Video short from Art 21 profiles New York digital artist whose works combine 3D, dance culture, performance, gaming, experience, and sexuality - video embedded below:

How does an artist use digital technology to perform new identities? In this film, artist Jacolby Satterwhite crafts surreal 3D animated videos while transporting characters from his virtual worlds into the streets of New York City. “We’re in the age of the remix,” says the artist, who observes that “now it’s about how you use the information around you to generate your individuality.” At a modest computer setup in his Chinatown studio, Satterwhite digitally traces by hand his mother’s schematic drawings of inventions, reimagining them into baroque, neon-colored landscapes in a constant state of flux. Adapting additional visual references—home movies, family photos, documentary footage, and images throughout art history—Satterwhite “queers” the purpose and meaning of his source material, creating a unique personal mythology through stream of consciousness storytelling techniques.

For me, serious photography has grown so boring and humourless," he says. "All these photographers with large-format cameras making big landscapes with a power plant in the background and everything so beautiful and perfect. That is something I really hate. What I am looking for is ordinary photographs that tell a a bigger story.

It is what it is and, in a way, photography is flourishing even if some photographers are not. I read somewhere recently that the average person in the west sees more images before lunch than someone living in 1890 would see in their whole life. It’s hard to make sense of what that means. Everyone can make a picture look fantastic now just by using an app, so that is not the point any more. Ideas are the key. Ideas are the future.
