Booooooom Reader Submissions: April

APRIL-600

Here is this month’s Reader Submissions post, please share your work here during the month of April if you’d like to be considered for a feature on Booooooom. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

One of the things that makes Booooooom unique is all the encouraging comments people send back and forth on these monthly submission posts. The comments and upvotes do not go unnoticed! Voting up work is like high-fiving that person and it also helps us see what work you guys like! Remember, even if your work isn’t featured on the main site these posts can send some decent traffic to your portfolio!

 

Submission guidelines:

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.

“Venus of Google” by Artist Matthew Plummer-Fernandez

Venus2

Colombian-British artist Matthew Plummer-Fernandez explores the use of technology to create an infinity of cultural artifacts. “Venus of Google” is a google image search of a woman modelling a body-wrap garment turned into a 3D printable object.

Using an algorithmic image-comparison technique, which starts with a plain box shape and tries thousands of random configurations before mutating into something resembling the found image, the project speaks to Plummer-Fernandez’s interest in the paradox of technology as simultaneously advanced and primitive. Check out more images and a video clip of the process below!
