About the Book
With the ability to have a camera phone in my pocket at all times, I can document the everyday, anytime. This book evaluates a typology of images I capture on my camera phone and identifies a dominant visual theme of light: natural, artificial and reflective. This book takes excerpts from Allen Ruppersberg’s 50 Helpful Hints on Art of The Everyday; and I capture 50 images of everyday observations of light. Ruppersberg uses what I call ‘didactic-lite ’ language in the title 50 Helpful Hints on Art of The Everyday; he does not actually list 50 hints but uses the common categorizing style headline as a way to showcase some of his philosophies on art. With my images, I am using this concept in a similar fashion in order to let the viewer look at the ordinary in an extraordinary way and to interpret a narrative in their own way. Enjoy!
