CONCEPT: The iPhone has become an increasingly popular device for image making, allowing for fast, fun and easy processing of images.

We also explore thepotential of the iPhone for use in documentary projects, book projects, mixed-media designs, digital negatives, art installations and a variety of other unique possibilities.

ACTIVITIES: We participate in daily field trips, studio time and discussions.
