Booooooom Submissions / June

june-600

Sorry I’m a bit late making the new art submissions post; I just flew home from Taiwan. Thanks for submitting your work to the May Submissions post, and for leaving all of those nice comments to everyone else who submitted work. Please keep upvoting work you like, it really helps artists in this community. This way work that I may not feel is a fit for the site can still be seen, and everyone can get traffic to their personal websites.

Please share your work here during the month of June. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

 

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.

Giveaway: Art Created From Your DNA

genetic-ink-dna-art-01

This week’s giveaway is something completely different; art generated from your very own DNA. Fast Company, and Vice recently wrote about a New York-based company called Genetic Ink offering wall-ready art sequenced from a swab of the cheek. The service is not limited to humans either, DNA from dogs and cats works as well.

I can see this freaking out as many people as it will fascinate. I remember artist Heather Dewey-Hagborg raised eyebrows with her series of 3D faces generated from DNA found on gum, cigarettes, and hair that she picked up off the street.

Generative art based on personal data has to be the most relevant depiction of the times we are living in. This is the age of algorithms, data visualisation, and everything private made public. I would love to see this data interpreted in completely different styles; perhaps less design-y and more painterly. DNA as a Kandinsky painting could be cool.

If you wanna know what you’d look like as a piece of generative art, we’re giving away a personalized print (24×32). What’s the most amazing use of science in art that you’ve seen? Leave a comment with your answer and we’ll pick a winner on Friday, June 6th.
