I'm in Bognor Regis #Butlins :)
Lately I've been getting back in to taking instagram pics. I enjoy the thrill of finding something eye catching and carefully framing it in a little square. Easy capture - as my phone is in my pocket and I can mail it to myself too.
The idea of re-framing the world to create little magical images appeals. An opportunity to seek and find something pleasing out there, using the lens to create a mini piece of art. At least that's how I see it. It's about seeing (not just looking), which always feeds in to the art-making process for me. Cut out the clutter, home in on what you want to view/create.
For a while I've been harbouring the notion of turning the pics in to something real too.
So, some ideas for you and me:
:: Printed photos with polargram - if you've already got an intagram account just log in and select images and get them printed!
:: Ceramic instagram pic tiles with imagesnap - they ship internationally although it seems a little long-winded for those of us in the UK (link at bottom of page)
:: One in the UK for photos to tiles - Splashbacks and all sorts created due to their addition of a special protective solution
:: Photobook - make your own instagram photobook of daily pics with blurb - I LOVE books!
:: Greetings cards - this company looks rather gorgeous; printstagram - based in the USA again although they ship internationally. Inkifi is based in the UK though
:: Business Cards - moo.com are a rather delicious company (albeit not the cheapest) and are now doing square business cards if you'd like your gorgeous snaps to become your calling cards ;)
:: Stickers! Get your favourite images as stickers you can stick up around the world with printed.com
:: Fridge magnets here
