Booooooom Giveaway: Sony High-Resolution Bluetooth Headphones

sony-bluetoothheadphones1

This week’s giveaway is courtesy of Sony! They sent me out a pair of their latest Bluetooth headphones and there’s nothing basic about these. The headphones are high-resolution compatible meaning they can handle audio files higher quality than mp3 (FLAAC etc), and are wireless (Bluetooth and NFC syncing).

I have two pairs to give away (one for Canada, one for outside of Canada). So if you’d like to snag a pair of these leave a comment below and tell me: What’s the first song/album you’re going to listen to with these headphones? Also, make sure you tell me what city you live in! We’ll pick two winners in two weeks.

Booooooom Submissions / August

august-submission1

Here’s this month’s submission post! Thank you for all the submissions to the July Submissions post. This is the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Thanks 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 during the month of August. 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.

Ultimate List of all the Best Art + Photo Tumblrs to Follow

 

Ultimate List of all the Best Art + Photo Tumblrs to Follow

 

*Update July 21st – I am gonna update this entire list, get rid of Tumblrs that are no longer updated, and add a whole bunch more.

I am starting to compile an extensive curated list of all the art and photography Tumblrs worth following. I would love your help to make this the ultimate list! Please leave a comment below with your suggestions and I will update this list with the quality suggestions.

This list will focus as much as possible on Tumblrs that survey works by different people and credit the creators of the images. Please do not submit Tumblrs that only focus on one person’s work (ie. your own personal portfolio) and I’d like to include as many sites as possible that credit the original creators.

Please share this with friends, the more input we have the better this resource will be! Stoked for this! Let’s go!

Best of Instagram: Week 20

Here’s this week’s Best of Instagram post. As always, I am trying to feature photographers with smaller followings and making a conscious effort to feature photography that isn’t the heavily filtered style that has become synonymous with Instagram.

Guest posters regularly take over the @Booooooom Instagram, so if you’d like to be considered for a future “Best of” post you can connect with me on my personal Instagram account @JeffHamada. You can and should leave a comment below with a link to your Instagram along with an image from your feed!

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.

Booooooom x ???????

boom-sneak-peek

In my big year-end post in December I said “These past five years, all of it, it’s all still the beginning. It would be really dumb to be satisfied with the beginning.” I set really big goals for myself for this year.

I’ve got something big to announce very soon (I’ve been hinting about it on my Instagram), it involves friends of mine and their brand, also based right here in Vancouver (you may be able to guess). This is the first of several projects that have been a little while in the making. I’m excited to tell you about this one. Stay tuned.

Giveaway: Cecilia Camera Straps

cecilia-camerastraps

This week I’m giving away four camera straps courtesy of Cecilia. A little bit about the straps:

“The full-grain leather is selected from premium Argentinian cowhides. The hides are finished in the USA with surface treatments that give the leather its durability. The alpaca textiles are handwoven by weavers in the Peruvian highlands. The backstrap loom weaving techniques and traditional patterns are a heritage of Andean culture. Sourced from mills in the USA, the reinforced webbing runs through the ends of the straps to ensure strength and reliability. The straps are assembled in León, Mexico. We work with some of the most experienced artisans of leather goods to craft a product of The Americas.”

If you’d like to snag one of these camera straps, leave a comment below and upload a photo you have taken recently. I’ll let the folks at Cecilia pick their four favourite images in two weeks (4 different winners).

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!

CONGRATULATIONS TO: Maria Fernanda G, Matt Skuza, Alex Couture & Guilherme Viñas
