Remake / Photo Project

Adobe recently put forth a challenge to students in the UK with a cash prize of £10,000. The deadline is soon so if you want in on it you better work quick! Since so many of our readers live outside the UK I thought it might be fun to work with Adobe on our own project. They thought so too, so here it is!

The Booooooom + Adobe Remake photo project.

Booooooom x Adobe Remake Project


The idea of the project is to remake a famous work of art using photography. This photo by Sarah Hermans is a perfect example of what I’m after as it references Michelangelo’s “Creation of Adam” simply, and beautifully. Now I don’t have £10,000 to put up as prize money but I was able to get a copy of the entire Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Master Collection ($899).

RULES

1. This is a PHOTO project! I’m looking for photos only. This means no paintings, drawings, collages. The idea is to put all your creative energy into re-creating and re-staging the image. All the work here happens before you take the photo, rather than afterward. Please refrain from adding special effects and other things to your image on your computer.

2. Please reference classic works of art, I’m not looking for remakes of contemporary artwork, album covers, or fashion photography.

3. This isn’t a rule but if you want a bit of inspiration take a look at: Miranda July as movie extras.

HOW TO SUBMIT

1. Jump over to our FACEBOOK PAGE.

2. Upload a photo to our wall. A limit of 2 submissions please!

3. Where it says “say something about this photo…” write the name of the famous work of art you have remade, and copy/paste this link: http://booo.ms/r46XWc

how to do it

4. Hit the share button and you’re all done.

The best submissions will be posted in a gallery on Booooooom and one of you will walk away with the prize!

Deadline for submissions is October 21st 2011.

By submitting your work to the Booooooom Facebook group you are giving us permission to post them on our website and pass them along to other blogs and news outlets who want to post about the project!

“The Omega Project” by Rone

Rone continues his exploration of doomed and abandoned spaces with his latest immersive exhibition. “The Omega Project” sees the Melbourne-based artist setting up shop in a condemned suburban cottage in his hometown. Granted access and free rein before it’s torn down, Rone has filled the early 1900s weatherboard house with his signature ‘Jane Doe’ portraits. He also teamed up with interior stylist, Carly Spooner, to recreate the archetypal interiors, furthering the jarring mix of beauty and destruction particular to the experience of street art. As Rone explains:

“The concept of creating something beautiful within the context of decay and decline is central to the experience of any street artist. As is the idea that whatever you create might be gone the next day. For the artist, street art is all about embracing that transience and impermanence. And for the audience, it’s about seeing it (and taking photos of it) while you can”

Click here to check out the incredible 3D tour created by Phoria as well as more images and video below. While the exhibition starts July 22 and runs until the end of the month, the exact location will only be disclosed via email tomorrow morning to those who RSVP!
