Here is this month’s submission post! I can’t believe there were nearly 1400 comments on the August Submissions post. I love seeing all the encouraging comments to one another! Keep it up.
This is the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Thanks again to everyone for up-voting work you like, it really encourages artists in this community and helps me see what work you like. I encourage you to share your work here because these posts get a lot of traffic and even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen, and definitely sends traffic to your own websites.
Please share your work here this month. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.
1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.
2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.
3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.
4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
Vancouver-based artist Ed Spence is making some of my favourite work right now. I dropped by his studio a couple weeks ago and I couldn’t leave without buying a piece. Let me explain to you what you’re looking at.
Ed takes a photograph of a crumpled piece of reflective paper. Then he prints the image and cuts out a section of it using a blade. He carefully cuts up the section into small “pixels” and re-arranges them based on colour. So if you were to run your hand along the finished photograph you would feel the texture of the cut pieces.
You kinda have to see these in person to really get the full effect. Really fantastic stuff! Lots more images below. The one I bought is the next one down.
