Photoshop World Report

Room with a view…34th floor looking North.

Photoshop World was last week and it was both a lot of fun and educational for those who attended. This is my report of the first day of my first Photoshop World. I only shot stuff on this first day (I was speaking the other days) so this is the only posting I’ll be doing.

It’s hard to tell where pixels end and reality begins

Written by Steven Winn

A tree writhes and pulses on the wall, every bare limb and summoning branch tip sinuously alive. Nearby, rainbow-colored light pours in giant waves across another gallery, engulfing everything in the viscous, undulating glow of Jennifer Steinkamp’s “The Wreck of the Dumaru.”

Upstairs, more wonders await the visitor to the San Jose Museum of Art‘s “Edge Conditions” show of seductively alluring digital art. Takuji Kogo’s “A Song for the Silicon Valley” weds a whimsical audio account of a woman’s skittering sex life to dreamy aerial views of San Jose, a place the artist has never visited. It’s a kind of jokey rapture on the endless possibilities (and perils) of connecting in a world of boundless digital accessibility.

Scanner Artist Marsha Tudor Exhibit

floatgallerynmarshatudor-1.jpgMarina del Rey, Calif. — Float Gallery presents works of direct digital capture by Marsha Tudor, August 31 through September 16, 2006.

The show includes original digital prints from botanical sources which, despite their representational origin, explore perception and visual relationships.

Marsha Tudor, scanner artist, challenges conventional views of photography and digital capture. Using an Epson 4990 scanner, she creates images of such sculptural dimensionality that they belie the flat surface on which they are created. The exceptional resolution possible with a flatbed scanner produces images of remarkable clarity; this sharp focus is dramatically supported by the dark backgrounds which often result from the top being removed from the scanner.
