Opening Reception: Friday, November 7, 6-9pm; During Dupont Circle’s First Friday
Anthony Palliparambil, Jr.'s work revolves around the roles of rebirth, technology, and social media in the arts today. In a matter of seconds, anyone can take a photograph, apply a vintage-effect filter, and post it for millions to view. Using images from his personal archive of photographs, Palliparambil edits them using only software and applications on an iPad. During the creation of this series, he posted each image to various social media platforms, encouraging feedback from an international audience. The series eventually grew into an interactive project, wherein the audience was invited to submit photographs from their own archives for Palliparambil transformed into new works – creating art from art.
