IMAGE vs DATA

Photography has long been concerned with data retention within the act of the photograph. Photographers are taught to expose, develop, and digitally capture in a method to maintain the most information possible. Every step in a photographer’s workflow is a careful dance to keep data. It doesn’t matter if we are talking film or digital, every photographic process is essentially the mastery of data retention. The reasoning is, having the most information available allows for the most creative interpretations of the information.

Touch.My.Prints wants to explore this concept of the photography as data as opposed to image. TMP will provide an image for every participant to take. Each participant will use the image as data and create a new piece of work. The new work can be video, sculpture, sound, video, even a drastic reinterpretation of the image, etc. A selection of the new works and their creators will be featured in Touch.My.Prints. ISSUE02.

Touch.My.Prints. ISSUE01 Launches May 1

Touch.My.Prints Issue01 explores our relationships with NPCs (non-player characters). Through articles, photography, video, and gameplay, each artist explores aspects of his/her relationships to these characters inside a digital space. The characters take shape as NPCs, landscapes, characters we create, and the devices themselves holding these characters.

Touch.My.Prints will officially launch May 1. You will be able to download the issue from Gumroad.com and I will post the official link on this event and on TMP’s main website site, http://www.touch-my-prints.com/ when the link is live. 

Thank you to everyone who made this possible. To all my editors, a wonderful friend, Louise, for helping with the overall design, and to all my colleagues who have encouraged me. I also want to thank my parents who have always taught me to chart my own path. 

The price for the digital issue is free and I plan to keep it that way.
