The CCCB joins the mobile photography artistic project #Ubiquography

May 14th, 2012 2 Comments

From 24 May to 8 June, the CCCB will be hosting the exhibition Ubiquography, a participative exhibition which will display photographs taken by people around the world with their mobile phones and which will be screened at the same time at cultural centres and organisations in different countries: one person, one place, the world over.

#Ubiquography. Capture, edit, publish and exhibit

Ubiquography is a Barcelona Photobloggers project, co-produced by the Centre Cívic Guinardó, which aims to reflect on a new field of photographic exploration and creation today known as iPhoneography, the use of a mobile phone camera to take photographs.

Through a collective exhibition, Ubiquography bases its motto on ubiquity and immediacy, the main characteristics of this new artistic tendency.

Without the technique required by traditional photography, the new mobile phones and their applications and filters, offer users total creative freedom to capture moments, chance happenings and instants with their mobile camera.

Ubiquography is also an online participative project. Through the mobile photography application and social network Instagram, participants in the project will capture, edit and publish photographs from their mobile phone and these will instantly be shown in the exhibition which will be able to be seen at different points around the world, simultaneously and at the same time that the author publishes the photo.

Right now, Ubiquography features 498 authors and 26,149 photographs which you can view on its website.

An exhibition in real time: ubiquity and immediacy

The photographs published at Ubiquography will be displayed via two platforms: the ubiquography.com website and the exhibition in the “real world”.

The physical exhibition can be visited from 24 May to 8 June, simultaneously at different organisations and cultural centres around the world, including the CCCB. To date, some 22 organisations have confirmed their participation, and they will use different kinds of projection methods depending on the centre where the exhibition is held.

The LIVE projection will show the last photograph published, until another authors publishes another new photograph and it takes the place of its predecessor. This process will be generated in real time and automatically.

In the HISTORY projection, all the images published in Ubiquography will be shown in rotation in the order in which they were published.

How do I participate?

To be able to publish your photos at Ubiquography, you need to have an Instagram account and register on the Ubiquography website, where you will find the requirements and participation application form.

Once your photograph has been published on Instagram, you need to label it with the hashtag #ubiquography so that it will automatically be imported to the exhibition platforms (website and physical exhibition).

Tzvetan Todorov on Murs caiguts, murs erigits

«The fall of the Berlin Wall appeared to augur the fall of other walls that subsisted in different places. Twenty years on, we must acknowledge that that hope did not come to fruition: rather than disappearing from the face of the Earth, the walls have multiplied. How can we explain that?»
