LAST DAY 12/16/13 to Support iPhoneArt.com on Kickstarter!

The deadline to contribute (even a dollar) is TODAY, Monday December 16, 2013 at 12 midnight Pacific Standard Time. Don’t miss this opportunity to support that greatest force for good in iPhoneography!

A note from Bob Weil and Nicki Fitz-Gerald (your iPhoneographyCentral hosts): This is our opportunity to collectively support and grow the most important iPhoneography community out there – iPhoneArt.com. Consisting of more than 7,000 iPhoneographers who daily post groundbreaking new imagery representing the best of this new phenonomen called “iPhoneArt.” The site boasts an active community of users who constantly interact, challenge one another, and help one another reach new levels of creativity in their work. Daria and Nate Park funded and hosted the first-ever Los Angeles Mobile Arts Festival in August 2012 (see the images below) – to date still the largest collection of printed iPhone art in a single location in the world (over 600 pieces). Let’s all take this opportunity to help Nate and Daria reach their Kickstarter goal!

Daguerreotype & Ambrotype Inspired Mirror & Glass iPrints – Our Kickstarter Goal to Support iPhoneArt.com

by Nate and Daria Park

The goal of every artist is to make something great, and get it seen by as many people as possible. That is our goal, too. We think we have something truly special and unique here, and everyone who has had the opportunity to see one first hand has agreed.

Kickstarter is a great way for us to test the market and see if there is a high demand for fine art pieces like this. It also gives the digital art and mobile photography community something to rally around as we move forward.

Our Kickstarter goal of $30,000 will go toward solidifying the production pipeline for these new print products. The materials and the technology used to produce these pieces are very expensive. We can lower our costs by purchasing in bulk, and doing larger print runs. The prototypes you see in the photos and videos were created from dozens of tests, trying different printers and working with different vendors. The success of this project will determine how we move forward in terms of which printers we purchase or lease, and which vendors we continue to work with.

Our ultimate goal is to eventually integrate these new products, and finish the iPrints online store and mobile app where people can upload their own images for purchase. The app will also give professional artists the opprotunity to have their work featured in the gallery, exposing them to a wider audience of art buyers and collectors.
