(MarketWire) – Mobile technology is revolutionizing our way of looking at the arts. What began as just a fun diversion — taking photos with your phone and playing with apps — has turned into a new art form at the nexus of art and technology. Mobile art, or iPhoneography, brings old and new ideas together.
Now, the first years of the growing mobile arts movement come to a culmination with the inaugural LA Mobile Arts Festival (LA-MAF), an eight-day event that will showcase the best in iPhoneography and other forms of mobile digital art. Hosted in Santa Monica, LA-MAF is the first-of-its-kind for the mobile arts and the largest mobile art event to date, featuring over 225 artists from over 30 countries and 25 U.S. states, exhibiting over 600 images, sculptures, films and installations.
